(Colorado Springs, Colo.) – USA Fencing is pleased to announce that a third Super Junior and Cadet Circuit tournament will be held during the 2019-20 season.
The three-day tournament for athletes in the junior (U20) and cadet (U17) age categories will be held from Feb. 28 – March 1 in Baltimore, Md. at the Baltimore Convention Center.
Similar to the Super Youth Circuit for fencers in the youth categories, the SJCC tournaments are an opportunity for junior and cadet fencers to compete on the national stage in preparation for the North American Cup circuit.
Athletes fencing in SJCC events have the opportunity to earn a ranking on the USA Fencing National Point Standings with the opportunity to qualify for the Junior Olympic Championships and July Challenge tournaments.
After a successful pilot season in 2018-19 in which the first-ever SJCC tournament was held in Anaheim, Calif., the 2019-20 season will include SJCC tournaments in Salt Lake City (Dec. 13-15), Baltimore (Feb. 28 – March 1) and Anaheim (March 13-15).
Discounted hotel rates are available through GroupHousing, the official housing partner of USA Fencing.
Registration is open now at member.usafencing.org.
