The criteria to be one of the 10 winners will be: a minimum of 3 Bay Cup events ref’d by an under 18 Northern California Member.
If more than 10 Under 18 referees from Northern California Division end up refereeing more than 3 Bay Cup events, the money reserved will be divided by the number of winners to subsidize their USFA Memberships.

You are a fencer? You need your USA Fencing Association Membership and your club too!
Why? USA Fencing Association asks all clubs to have their coaches submit to a background check and to an online training to coach kids in a safe environment. If your club is not on the USA Fencing Association list, they have not submitted to these 2 steps. USA Fencing Association also give clubs the options to get insurance through them. If they are not members, they need their own insurance and we recommend you to check your club has an insurance!
