The USFA is working towards an age verification process. This season, parents should come prepared with ONE of the following in case the fencer’s age needs verification for eligibility purposes:

A copy of birth certificate
Passport

Weapons are checked (weights and shims) during pools and direct eliminations for all events. Officials should be informed of all rules specific to youth events, especially that ALL Y10 events be fenced with blades no longer than 32.5 inches. Masks, gloves, body cords, and lames will be checked. Names on jackets or lames are not required.

Participation at an RYC qualifies fencers for Y10 events at the January & April NACs as well as Summer Nationals.

Points are awarded based on the new USFA points guidelines.
