Due to the astounding number of registrations in the last few days, we made a few changes for Check-in times to ensure smooth running of events, no overlapping of events, balancing events throughout the whole day, and making sure all events start on time. Please check the changes under "Tournament Schedule" Section.
We recommend all fencers that compete early on Saturday to come to early equipment check on Friday Jan 7th from 6 pm to 7:30 pm. We will check Mask, Glove, Lame and body cords.

NOTE: This competition takes place after the deadline for the 2020 Junior Olympics. Per the USFA, fencers entering the Junior events will be allowed to be born between 2000 and 2007 based on the following policy from the USFA Athlete’s Handbook:
"RJCCs held between JOs regular entry fee deadline and the Junior Olympic Championship will allow fencers that meet either the Junior Olympic birth year criteria or the July Challenge birth year criteria. Those who meet only the Junior Olympic birth year criteria may only earn new classifications, but will not receive regional points." - USA Fencing Age Chart
