NOTE: Always check event website for updated information as it may have changed since this event was added to the SCFC calendar.
Events: Youth-10/12/14 in all weapons + Cadet (RJCC)
SYC EVENTS: This is a national event and National Points may be earned at the competition. The top 40% of athletes (up to a maximum of 64) will earn National Points in their respective age/weapon category. No pre-qualification is necessary for this event but there is a registration deadline.
SYCs are one of the qualification paths for Youth 10 and Youth 12 events at the Youth NAC and USA Fencing Championships; Y10 and Y12 fencers must fence in one RYC or SYC competition in the current season in the age and weapon category(categories) in which fencer requests entry. The Athletes Handbook (http://www.usfencing.org/athlete-handbook)is the definitive reference document regarding points and qualification paths.
RJCC EVENTS: This is a regional event and REGIONAL Points may be earned at the competition. For more information on earning points at RJCC events, see the link to the USFA Athlete’s Handbook (above). Fencers may only earn RJCC points in the region in which they reside. SCFC is located in REGION 4 so only REGION 4 RJCC events would count for points. However, fencers may fence in any RJCC in the US; they just would not earn points unless it is a REGION 4 event.
Coaching: No on-site coaching available from SCFC staff.
Registration deadline: November 11, 2016
