If you are eligible to fence in an event by virtue of being on the NRPS in a lower age category, please contact Brenda Waddoups, waddoups@att.net with the name of the athlete, and the events the fencer wishes to fence, and proof of NRPS. You will be advised on how to proceed to pay for the events. Please verify your eligibility BEFORE doing this! No refunds will be given for ineligible fencers who mistakenly enter.

If you have a question about eligibility, please contact USA Fencing.

If a fencer meets the classification requirement when his or her application is processed by the Division, and subsequently earns a higher classification, the fencer retains eligibility for that tournament.

FENCE OFF FOR THIRD: If there are more than three fencers, but fewer than 13, third place must be fenced. Where there are 13 or more fencers in the final results, third place does not have to be fenced.
