Regional Open Circuit (ROC)

About the Regional Open Circuit (ROC)

The Regional Open Circuit (ROC) is designed to promote and develop strong regional tournaments for the Open/Division I-A fencer who seeks competitive opportunities beyond the local and division levels but below the NAC Division I level. Other competitive opportunities in the ROC tournaments are provided for Veteran (40 & Older) and Division II (C, D, E or U) fencers.  Please check the events calendar for more tournament dates.

ROC tournaments are open to current USA Fencing competitive members eligible to fence in Open competitions and to foreign fencers with current FIE licenses. 

After receiving the results, the National Office will send an online survey to all participants requesting their feedback.

Format: The format for all ROC events is one round of pools (of sizes in accord with the Operations Manual maximized to 6 and 7 fencers as possible), with 100% promoted to a direct elimination table.
