Youth (Y10, Y12, Y14)

You can qualify for Summer Nationals from Aug 1st to mid-June by either: (1) being in the national list for your age group by making top 40% in an SYC/NAC or, (2) reaching required regional points [Y14=150pts, Y12=70pts, Y10=have pts] by adding (up to) your 3 best results in RYCs.

All SYCs and NACs award national points regardless of the region the event takes place in. In other words, you can attend any SYC and/or NAC in any state and the points will count towards qualification. Remember, only the top 40% of fencers in the competition will earn points.

Only points in RYCs in your region will count towards qualification. In an RYC all fencers will earn points but it has to be an RYC in your region.

USA Fencing has several divisions in which fencers 13 and older can participate. You can 'earn a letter' which establishes you in a particular Division and it will affect your seeding in many tournaments. The letters go from A to E plus U for Unrated fencers. Division III includes those rated D and below, Division II those who are C and below, Division 1A for all rated fencer, and Division 1 only for those rated A, B, or C. Please refer to USAFencing.org for detailed information and up-to-date information.

All ROCs and NACs award national points regardless of the region the event takes place in. In other words, you can attend any ROC and/or NAC in any state and the points will count towards qualification. Remember, only the top 40% of fencers in the competition will earn points. Also, although ROCs are considered regional, top 3 results will be added and  listed in a single national list.
