The United States Fencing Association has announced new team events at National Tournaments beginning with North American Cup D in San Jose, California January 15-18, 2010.

The addition of team competitions was proposed by the Tournament Committee and supported by the National Office and Board of Directors in an effort to offer more bouting opportunities to fencers.

Ashley Razo, National Events Director, is pleased. "We believe this will improve fencers' overall experience at National Tournaments.  I look forward to your feedback on the additional events and schedule."

Junior Team events are set for NAC D in addition to the already scheduled individual Division 1 and Junior events. Junior Team events are also slated for the Junior Olympics taking place February 12-15, 2010 in Memphis, Tennessee. 

North American Cup D in Dallas, Texas will feature Division 2 Team events held over March 26-29, 2010.

Veteran Team events are an addition to the already scheduled Senior Team and Junior Team events at Summer Nationals in Atlanta, Georgia July 4-13, 2010.

Team events will be held each afternoon to avoid potential conflict with individual competition earlier in the day. 

A separate Club Team Entry form must be complete with team member names in order to be processed.  They are due to the National Office by the Regular Fee Entry Deadline for each tournament.
