A few notes about the qualifiers:
The Fencing Academy of Westchester
For Y14, fencers must be born between 2002 and 2005.
For Div 2 and 3, fencers must be born in 2003 or before.
How do I qualify for Div II and/or Div III?
The West-Rock Division runs the Division 2 and Division 3 qualifiers as one event. The top 25% of finishers will qualify for Division 2, and if eligible they will also automatically qualify for Division 3.
To determine the number of additional qualifiers for Division 3, we look at how many fencers competing were D or under — 25% of that number qualifies.
How do I pay for the qualifiers?
You cannot pay for the qualifiers via askfred. All payments are made at the door the day of the competition. We do not accept credit cards. We DO accept cash or check (made payable to The West-Rock Division US Fencing.)
Where can I find everything I need to know about the National Championships?
