Any athlete who is age eligible may register via Rail Station and request entry to a competition. 

Entries will only be accepted ONLINE through Rail Station by the entry deadline for each international competition.

By registering for an international competition in Rail Station, the athlete is confirming his / her intent to attend the competition if selected on the USA Fencing Selection Date after the USA Fencing Regular Entry Deadline.  The athlete's registration does not guarantee the fencer will be selected for the competition.  Athletes will not be asked to confirm their status after being selected; their initial interest by registering in the competition is seen as their intent to compete in the competition if selected. 

Withdraws must be received no later than the Regular Entry Deadline for that competition. Failure to withdraw by the posted deadline may result in fines as described in the 2014 / 2015 Athlete Handbook plus fines levied by the FIE. 

Complete Selection Procedure for International Designated Events is available in Chapter 4 of the Athlete Handbook
