Fencing season 2019-2020 had started! Which means you should start thinking about how you want your fencing season to go. Every year there are some changes to the rules and qualifying paths for USA Fencing Summer Nationals, not to mention that fencers progress through the age divisions and previous year path might be not relevant anymore. 2020 USA Fencing Summer Nationals are not exception.
This year there are not that many changes in the qualification process for USA Fencing Summer Nationals, but there are some changes to the eligibility and format for some divisions and the youth 12 and 14 events. In the previous post we covered all these changes.
To summarize these changes:
- All initial seeding will be based on national points, which is applicable for Division 1 and Junior events
- Division 2/3 eligibility will be based on the classification at the time of registration for the appropriate event at the nationals.
- Youth 12 and Youth 14 events will have an 80% cut off from the pools
- The maximum DE table will be 256 fencers
Everything you see on this infographic is information you’ll find on the USA Fencing website and in Athlete Handbook. We’re simply presenting it in a format that is visual and hopefully easy to follow.
