Tournament Details

The North Texas Fencing Tournament Coalition is pleased to announce that we are hosting one of the first ROC tournaments as part of USA Fencing's Return to Competition schedule. Please note this event is strictly limited to fencers from Region 5.

We will be using two venues spread out over a period of two weekends in order to accommodate the events, and maintain compliance with local health and safety regulations and occupancy restrictions.

This page is for registration of Men's Epee, Men's Foil, and Women's Foil and these events will take place at the Fencing Institute of Texas.

Women's Epee, Men's Sabre, and Women's Sabre will take place at Cutting Edge Fencing Center, and can be registered for here.

There will be no exceptions to COVID-19 safety protocols implemented throughout the tournament. If you cannot comply do not register for this tournament. These protocols and tournament changes due to COVID-19 may be altered by the organizers to comply with local, state, federal, and USA Fencing mandates.

  • Self-monitor and be symptom-free for at least 14 days prior to tournament. Stay home if you have had close sustained contact in last 14 days with anyone who was sick or known or believed to have COVID-19. Stay home if you are sick or do not feel well.
  • Fencers should come to the tournament already dressed in freshly washed fencing uniform. Changing in bathrooms will not be permitted, so you will need to come dressed to be able to comfortably change in other areas (socially distanced in the venue or outdoors).
  • Agree to temperature check on arrival. Any individual with a fever of greater than 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit, or any other symptoms of COVID-19, will not be admitted and will be asked to leave the venue immediately.
  • Everyone in the venue must wear a surgical or cloth mask covering nose and mouth, even under fencing masks, except when drinking or eating. Mask must cover nose and mouth. Vented masks are not allowed. There is no exception to this requirement. We cannot accommodate those with conditions that would preclude wearing a mask, so anyone unable to wear a mask should stay home. Any person refusing to wear a mask will be subject to penalty under offenses for Disturbing Order On Strip, or Disturbing Order Off Strip, as appropriate.
  • Everyone must practice social distancing.
  • Guardians must remain in designated seating areas off the fencing floor. Fencers should be comfortable with basic tournament procedures (including how to hook up) and troubleshooting, as no one will be allowed on the fencing floor. Tournament staff will be on the fencing floor in case some assistance is needed. If fencers are not self-sufficient, do not register for the tournament.
  • Fencers must remain in designated seating areas.
  • All warm-up activity must be done in designated areas.
  • Refrain from contacting other participants and attendees (handshakes, body contact, etc.)
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your elbow if you cough or sneeze.
  • Avoid touching your face, eyes or mouth with unclean hands.
  • Do not share equipment such as weapons, body cords, fencing masks, gloves or uniforms, with others.

2) There will be a strict limit of one additional person per athlete allowed in the venue - either a parent or coach, but not both.
