For everyone competing this weekend here are some reminders:
Y10 (Born between 2013-2016) and Y12 (Born between 2011-2014) fencers start at 8AM. This is when we plan to begin the event, plan to arrive by 7:30AM. Our coaches will help you get dressed out. Event fee is $20.
All other senior fencers (Born 2010 or earlier) start at 12PM. Again, we plan on starting at 12PM, plan to arrive around 11:30AM to begin dressing out. Event fee is $20.
You can see which event you are pre-registered for here: https://www.askfred.net/tournaments/61aadaba-6755-450d-8dd2-8d8999b49649/preregistrations
If everyone shows up, the Y10 and Y12 will fence separately.
What to bring/wear:
Wear what you’ve been wearing to class, short sleeves shirt, shorts, athletic shoes. The only difference is you will also be wearing a plastron (a half jacket under your regular fencing jacket), knickers (fencing pants), and the other competition gear. It’s earlier in the morning, so hopefully it won’t be too warm in the fencing room. Also bring snacks, water, and any other hydration you like.
For new families and fencers, we’ll talk about how a competition works before the event so you’ll have a general understanding of the event format. If you want to learn ahead of time, see our Primer on Tournaments page: https://allamericanfencing.com/a-primer-on-tournaments/
See everyone Saturday!
