Fall Tournaments – Starting in August

The North Carolina Division has not yet release dates for sanctioned events for September through December yet, but here are some notable events to mark on your calendar.The North Carolina Division has not yet release dates for sanctioned events for September through December yet, but here are some notable events to mark on your calendar.

In August, North Carolina is hosting a Regional Junior and Cadet Circuit with a Mixed Foil Open at Greensboro, NC.  This is a US Fencing sanctioned event, so make sure that you renew your competitive US Fencing competitive membership.

Birth year requirements for the 2017-2018 season

  • Junior event 1998-2004
  • Cadet event 2001-2004
  • Open event – born 2004 or earlier

Also in August, MidSouth Fencers Club in Durham is hosting their Annual Big Blue open with foil and epee events.

I’ve listed also some tentative dates for our in-house intramural tournaments.  The dates are not set in stone, but most likely will remain where they are.  So mark your calendars.  They are all unsanctioned, meaning you don’t need competitive membership, with the exception for the December event.  We have requested sanctioning for the December Foil and Epee event.  It will be an unrated event.  For those planning to participate, make sure you have your competitive membership!

This year, we will be using age categories that match US Fencing’s age categories for our intramural events.  If the event is unsanctioned, there is always leeway for ages because I know we have some younger fencers, and some younger fencers that want to compete at the teen/adult level.

Here is the age categories and corresponding birth years.

  • Senior:  Born 2004 or earlier
  • Youth:  (All-American Fencing Only) Ages 7-12
  • Y10:  Born between 2007-2010
  • Y12:  Born between 2005-2008
  • Veteran:  Born 1978 or earlier

Last thing…Don’t forget, all fencers at the All-American Fencing Academy must maintain a US Fencing Membership (non-competitive or competitive).  This is important for the All-American Fencing Academy to remain as a member club of the US Fencing Association and a requirement of our insurance!
