Tournament Format and Rules and Seeding
====================================
USA Fencing rules apply. http://www.usfencing.org/page/show/695208-rulebook
Medals awarded to top 8.
100% advances to DE after pool results.
Ratings can be awarded. Cadet events must meet or exceed criteria in Group C1 or higher to award changes in classification. See USFA
ratings chart at:
http://assets.ngin.com/attachments/document/0034/6264/Classification_Chart.pdf

The Bout Committee must use the current rating and points information found on the USFA website for seeding purposes. Please verify that your rating and points standing are correct with the USFA, and contact the National Office to resolve any discrepancies prior to the tournament. Current ratings can be verified here:
http://www.teamusa.org/USA-Fencing/Membership/Current-Membership-Listing
Current points standings can be verified here:
http://www.teamusa.org/USA-Fencing/Athlete-Info/Rankings/Current-Rankings.aspx

Fencers are responsible for ensuring accuracy of all posted information and must report errors to the bout committee immediately.
Fencer signature on pool score sheets and DE bout slip implies accuracy. Any mistakes in posted information throughout the tournament must be reported to the Bout Committee immediately (within 5 minutes of posting). Once DE round starts, pool results are final and no adjustments will be made. Check all results before leaving the strip.
Fencer signature on pool sheet and DE slip implies accuracy.

There is NO trickle down for points at the Regional level. Points earned in a Regional Cadet or Junior tournament only appear in the category in which they were earned. There IS trickle down for Qualification at the Regional level. Therefore, if a fencer qualifies in an older age group and is age eligible for a younger age group, they earn qualification in that category as well.

About RJCC Tournaments:

From US Fencing’s Athlete Handbook (http://www.usfencing.org/athlete-handbook):

Regional Junior/Cadet Circuit (RJCC): The RJCCs serve as one of the
qualification paths for Junior Olympic Fencing Championships and the July Challenge. There are no national points awarded at RJCC
competitions; please refer to Chapter 3 for more information on the
Regional Point structure. The Regional Ranking Point System (RRPS) is a ranking program designed to recognize and reward both participation and accomplishment at the RJCC Tournament level.

Regional Point Standings for Youth, Cadet and Junior reflect an
athlete’s results at RYC and/or RJCC tournaments within their home
region (based on division affiliation). These point standings are
posted online and are updated within five business days after the
tournament organizer has properly submitted results, event officials
form, membership forms and paid the program service fee. For more
information on this point system please visit –
http://www.usfencing.org/page/show/2292457-regional. These point standings
are not used for seeding, only National Point Standings are used for
seeding at regional tournaments.

Fencers only earn points at RJCCs within their home region (region is
assigned based on division affiliation). The best 2 results count
towards the point total. These points may qualify Cadet and Junior
fencers to the USA Fencing Junior Olympics and July Challenge. Points earned at Regional Junior/Cadet tournaments are not considered in determination of National Point Standings, for seeding or team selection purposes; they are only reflected in Regional Point
Standings. Using the formula below, RJCC tournaments will award points to all participants: ((#entries – place +1) / # entries) x 100 points The winner of each RJCC, regardless of size of field, will earn 100 points. The size of the participant field is based on all athletes in
the event, regardless of the region. Regional RJCC points are only
earned in the fencers own region.

The Cadet Regional Tournament is offered as part of the Regional
Junior Cadet Circuit (RJCC). No national points are awarded; regional
points are awarded to any competitor competing in their home region. Regional points are awarded based on final placement and the size of the competitive field.
