Should an event have more than 126 individuals who register, athletes will be selected as follows from among those who register for the tournament prior to the registration deadline:
- Top 75% (up to a maximum of 90 individuals) of U.S. citizens or permanent residents who meet the criteria above on the National Rolling Point Standings as of the opening day of registration will be selected in order of their ranking on the standings. Please Note: The top 75% (up to a max of 90) applies to U.S. citizens / permanent residents only. For example, if there are 100 fencers on the NRPS and 96 are U.S. citizens / permanent residents, 72 fencers (96 x .75) will be selected.
- All remaining slots will be allocated by a lottery that will take place at the conclusion of registration.
- Athletes not selected in the lottery will be placed on the waitlist for the event.
- Waitlist order will be determined by the lottery.
