It’s that time of year when high school fencers from all round the Midwest face off in the area’s largest non-USFA tournament for fencers in grades 9-12. We’ve already discussed equipment requirements and costs (see the last post on our Teamapp News screen). Included here in this post is the permission form for participating in the tournament. Please download and print it and have your parent or guardian sign in it. Return the bottom portion of the second page to me at practice this week.

This tournament is recommended for fencers who have previously competed in some other competition. If you have not yet fenced at an official match or tournament, please discuss this with me before registering for the tournament. I don’t want to discourage anyone, but this particular tournament could be overwhelming to the brand new fencer. If you have any questions about competing at this tournament, please don’t hesitate to ask.
