General Operating Rules

1.26 - Event Classification and Right to Fence

Unless designated otherwise, all events are open mixed gender. Intention to fence in a Division III/novice or women’s event is accepted under affirmation that you qualify. We do not police or validate your qualification for any event.

However, an entry in all tournaments for any event is subject to the approval of the Technical Tournament Director and the Bout Committee. A fencer can be removed from an event, penalized appropriately, or excluded based on the unanimous consent of the committee that the athlete does not belong in the event and/or tournament.
