{YEL!} Fencing tournaments are for beginner, intermediate, and advanced fencers.  Some tournaments require you have your own equipment.  Others provide all equipment.  Look at each specific tournament for details.

April Fools Day Fencing Tournament

Fencing Tournament – Grades 2-5

Please type in your child’s SCHOOL NAME where he/she takes fencing class in the “School Name” box.

{YEL!} Fencing Tournaments are fun, fair and fast paced.  Fencers participate in two rounds of tournament fencing against fencers in their same age group (Grades 2-3, 4-5, 6-7, 8-12), and everyone gets a trophy or medal based on their performance.

Please double check the correct grade level when enrolling.

† Individual Tournament:  Every student will participate in 2 fencing rounds. Pools and then another round of pool play.  This is NOT a single elimination tournament.  Students will compete against other fencers of similar grade level (2-3, 4-5).  We reserve the option to combine or separate grade levels based on the number of participants.

† Medals & Trophies:  Trophies are given out to 1st – 5th place in each grade level category.  Medals are given out based on performance (i.e. 3.5+ points = Gold, 2.5-3.5 = Silver, etc.).  Every student will get either a trophy or a medal by the end of the day.
