How to Earn Regional Points

Please refer to Chapters 3 of the Athlete Handbook for more details on points. 

The Regional Junior/Cadet Circuit (RJCC) is designed to promote and develop strong regional tournaments for Junior and Cadet aged fencers who seek competitive opportunities beyond the local and divisional level but below the NAC Junior/Cadet levels.

Fencers only earn points at RJCCs within their home region (your Region is assigned based on Division affiliation). Only the best 2 results count towards the point total. These points may qualify Cadet and Junior fencers to the USA Fencing Junior Olympics and July Challenge. Points earned at Regional Junior/Cadet tournaments are not considered in determination of national point standings; they are only reflected in regional point standings. 

Using the formula below, RJCC tournaments will award points to all participants:

((# entries – place + 1) / # entries) x 100 points

The winner of each RJCC, regardless of size of field, will earn 100 points. The size of the participant field is based on all athletes in the event, regardless of region. Regional RJCC Points are only earned in the fencers own region.

RJCCs must have at least 2 competitors and cannot be fenced with mixed gender.
