All competitors in championship events must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents. Athletes that have represented another country in the least three years at FIE level competitions (Senior/Junior and those athletes that represented another country in the Cadet World Championships) are not eligible to compete in a National Championship, unless the athlete has been officially approved by the FIE to represent the USA.

Senior team events in all weapons also will be held at the NAC. As a reminder, athletes competing in senior team events in NAC competitions do not have to represent the same club as the events are not championship events.
