Information About Qualification to Nationals
The RYC tournament serves as one qualifying path for Y10 and Y12 fencers to the Youth
NAC and for Y10/12 and 14 fencers to the Summer National Championships.
A percentage of regional point holders from each region will earn qualification to the Summer
National Championships in Y12 and Y14. For more information on Youth
Qualification paths refer to the Athlete’s Handbook: http://www.usfencing.org/athletehandbook
and the qualification table available under the “Qualification” tab on the RJCC resources page:
Organizers are responsible for being able to answer questions from the membership
concerning Regional Points and Qualification at their tournament.
Youth NAC: Y10 and Y12 fencers must participate in at least one RYC or SYC tournament
prior to the regular registration deadline for the March/April Youth NAC in order to be
considered eligible to compete. RYCs that take place before the Youth NAC but after the
regular registration deadline will NOT be considered for meeting eligibility requirement for the
Youth NAC. Y14 registration for this NAC is open and has no pre-tournament requirements.
