USA Fencing Recognizes Athletes Who Earned Ratings in January

Ratings will only be awarded if the following requirements are met:

  1. Ratings are only awarded at sanctioned USA Fencing tournaments or at recognized high school competitions.
  2. Once a local tournament concludes, the tournament director is required to submit final results and a referee report to the National Office.
  3. USA Fencing verifies 100 percent membership of the tournament entrants. Any competitor who does not have an eligible membership must renew at the appropriate membership category.
  4. All referees must have appropriate membership with current background check and SafeSport training.
  5. Division officers must sign the classification change report in order for the results to be verified.

USA Fencing makes every effort to publish earned ratings at the earliest possible time but all requirements must be met for this to occur.

Please note: AskFred is not affiliated with USA Fencing and any ratings assigned on AskFred are not considered official until the USA Fencing National Office has been able to verify results and tournament protocols.

Before contacting USA Fencing, it is advisable to contact the tournament director first to insure the results have been submitted.  Generally, tournaments can be closed out within five days following the last day of competition, but the process may take up to three weeks.
