The Mission Regional Junior/Cadet Circuit (RJCC) is a regional qualifier for the Junior Olympic Championships and the July Challenge for Region 3 fencers. All Region 3 competitors earn regional points towards qualification to JO's 2021 and the July Challenge 2021
The Regional Junior Cadet Circuit (RJCC) is sanctioned by USA Fencing. RJCCs are a group of events throughout the country for fencers in the junior and cadet age categories in all six weapons. They provide an opportunity for young athletes to experience elite competition, earn regional RJCC points, and prepare for future national events while limiting travel time and expenses for the fencers and families. Regional RJCC Points will be awarded to all fencers in the competitive field who reside in Region 3. The Athlete's Handbook:(http://www.usfencing.org/athletehandbook) contains detailed information on qualifying pathways for the Junior Olympics and the July Challenge and should be used as the appropriate reference document.
Note, this tournament is being scheduled at the request of USA Fencing; however, subject to New York State laws and orders regarding COVID-19, including assembly of persons, or if any circumstances arise that would preclude safe running of this event, this tournament can be cancelled at any time. Should tournament cancel, any refund of fees is subject to USA Fencing.

Tournament organizer reserves the right to refuse entry to anyone coming from one of these areas. • Wash and sanitize all your fencing equipment. Consult the manufacturer for proper cleaning instructions to avoid possible damage to equipment. • 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. 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.
• 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.
