September 2010 News - Changes to the 2010-11 Fencing Season

Changes to the Junior/Cadet Championships; Team Events

Starting with the 2010-2011 fencing season, the only Junior and Cadet National Championships are the Junior Olympic Fencing Championships in February. In July 2011 the Under 19 and Under 16 events will be incorporated in the NAC framework along with Youth 12, Youth 10, Under 19 Team and Veteran Team events. 


Beginning with the 2010-2011 season, all non-championship team events held at the national level will have no club or division affiliation requirements. Any three or four fencers that are age-, gender- and/or classification-eligible for the event may enter a team. [BoD, July 2010]

As a result, there will be No Division Team Qualifier events or U16 Summer National qualifier events!
