USA Fencing is pleased to announce that the Division I/Parafencing National Championships and April North American Cup will take place in Charlotte, North Carolina from April 21-24, 2022.

Taking place at the Charlotte Convention Center, national championships will be awarded in individual and team Division I and parafencing events with gold medals also on the line in junior, cadet and Division II events at the NAC.

Charlotte, which most recently hosted the 2020 January North American Cup, also is scheduled to be the final domestic qualifier for the 2022 Senior World Championship Team.

Due to the Division I National Championships' conflict with the Saber Seoul Grand Prix, currently scheduled for April 22-24, 2022, an adjustment has been made to section 3.4.1 in the USA Fencing Athlete Handbook:

3.4.1 Strength Factor for USA Fencing Division I North American Cup events

The Division I National Championships will have a minimum strength factor of 1.0 and a maximum of 1.1. Should the dates of the Division I National Championships conflict with a designated Senior World Cup or Grand Prix tournament, the Division I National Championships will have a minimum strength factor of .8 and a maximum of 1.1. This will apply only to the weapon(s) with the conflict.

In addition, the registration deadlines and day schedules have been finalized for the January NAC, Junior Olympic Championships, March NAC, and the Division I/Parafencing National Championships and April NAC:
