Check in schedule for the Raleigh SJCC and NAC have been posted.
For fencers that are fencing, please view your check in schedule. For anyone that is visiting or supporting our fencers, view the times that our fencers are fencing if you want to watch them. Otherwise, this is also a good time to not only watch great National competition in our state, but also purchase and try on equipment!
Here are when our fencers are fencing:
Everybody taking part in or present at a fencing competition must remain orderly and must not disturb the smooth running of the competition. During bouts no one is allowed to go near the pistes, to give advice to the fencers, to criticize the Referee or the judges, to insult them or to attempt to influence them in any way. Even the team captain must remain in the space assigned to him and he may only intervene in the situations and in the manner provided for in Article t.130 of the Rules. The Referee must stop immediately any activity which disturbs the smooth running of the bout which he is refereeing.
Starting June 7, 2023, Wednesday classes will shift 15 minutes earlier and start at 6PM. For all students that will be moving up to the older class on Wednesdays, the class itself lasts an hour, but all students in these classes are expected to fence electric after class. Typically fencers will stay for another half hour to 45 minutes doing open electric fencing, but you can leave whenever you like and stay however long you like. Students in this class tend to compete more frequently so we spend additional time practicing in full competition gear.
