REGIONAL OPEN CIRCUIT
Eligibility to Enter: Please note the following changes affecting the birth year for the cadet and junior categories as this event occurs after JO's. The eligibility guidelines are taken from the Athlete Handbook. RCCs and RJCs held after the Junior Olympic Championships will only accept entries from athletes for which the tournament serves as a qualification path: Therefore the birth years are as follows:
Div IA: Born 2003 or before (or on the Junior National Rolling Points List), with any rating
Eligibility is based on birth year, regardless of the specific day/month

ROC events function as qualifiers to the National Championships Division I-A, Division II and Veteran Categories, and may qualify fencers to other events, depending upon classification and status. The USFA Athlete Handbook contains detailed information on qualifying pathways and should be consulted as the appropriate reference document.

ROC tournaments are open to current USFA competitive members eligible to fence in Open competitions and to foreign fencers with current FIE licenses; however, foreign fencers are not eligible to compete in USA Fencing National Championship events. An athlete can fence at any ROC and may earn points at any ROC. Regional points are awarded to 40% of the competitive field. In the event that a foreign fencer finishes within the qualifying group, the foreign fencer will be skipped.

Cadet & Junior July Challenge
