The USFA Western Washington Division presents The 2022 Battle in Seattle

The Battle in Seattle is back!

The Battle in Seattle is the Western Washington Division's largest annual event, drawing fencers from all over the country. As part of the Regional Open Circuit (ROC), the Battle offers fencers the opportunity to earn points towards qualifying for the Division I-A events at Summer Nationals.

The top 40% of finishers in each event will earn Division I-A ROC points. Veteran fencers that compete in these events will automatically qualify for the corresponding veteran event at Summer Nationals.

Where are the veteran events?!? You can find them on www.AskFred.net

NEW!!!
We will have logo T-shirts for sale at the Battle this year! If you are interested in a shirt (and to help us estimate how many to have printed), please order your shirt here: https://www.fencingtime.com/Home/WWD

COVID-19 Policies

The following COVID-19 policies will be in effect during the tournament. These policies may change depending on the COVID situation and Washington State laws at the time of the event.

To limit the number of people in the venue at any time, we have instituted caps on the number of fencers in each event.

All attendees must wear face coverings at all times, regardless of vaccination status.

Athletes may be accompanied by one guest. All guest except for coaches must remain upstairs on the mezzanine. Only athletes, officials, and coaches are allowed on the fencing floor.

(Updated 12/18/21) In accordance with the USFA COVID policy adopted by the Board of Directors on October 16, 2021, we will be applying the same policy at the Battle in Seattle that is in effect for USFA National Events: all people entering the venue will be required to provide proof of vaccination. Unvaccinated people will not be allowed entry under any circumstances unless they have a verified medical/religious exemption. We will be verifying vaccine status at the door and providing wristbands for daily access. Before the event, we will send an email to all competitors with instructions on how to (optionally) provide vaccination proof in advance.

(Updated 1/15/22) If you need to cancel your registration, we will refund all of your paid entry fees (except the $5 USFA "Admin fee") rather than just the event fee(s). This way, if you are not feeling well or have health concerns, do NOT come to the venue and risk making others sick. You can cancel without sacrificing any of your paid fees and we will gladly process your refund.
