How to Earn National Points

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

The Super Youth Circuit (SYC) competitions will award points to the top 40% of the competitive field (rounded up to the next higher integer) to a maximum of 64th place. In all SYC Youth events, 3 fencers must compete in order for points to be awarded. Points will be awarded based on the eligible (i.e., current competitive members) fencers in starting competitive field. Refer to Points Tables in the Athlete Handbook for greater detail on youth points.

If the Cadet events at an SYC are sanctioned as Regional Cadet Circuit events, regional points will be awarded to participants fencing in their home region.

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

If the criteria is met, classification changes can only be updated once results, membership forms and program service fee are received by the National Office from the RYC tournament organizer. While many tournament organizers make use of for processing entries and posting of results, currently is not linked to the USA Fencing website and tournament organizers must submit results of each competition to the USA Fencing National office.
