The second Seacoast Team Meet is Sunday, January 8, at our club in Rochester NH. It is time to sign up for our first fencing opportunity of the new year! Do so on Google Sheets (below). Type your name under the events you want to enter. You can enter as many as two events at the same starting time.
Pre-registration closes at midnight on Thursday, January 5, but please don’t wait until the last minute- your coach gets nervous (plus he has to line up director/coaches).
This is a great way to start 2023 and interact with the Seacoast fencers from both clubs. You don’t have to be a competitive member of the USFA, since this is a club meet. It will be all electric (rental gear will be available). If you are new to the training groups, this is your first opportunity to try electric competition-so don’t miss it!
Age is your age on Dec 31, 2022. Morning events are 14 & Under Foil, 10 & Under Foil, and Junior & Adult Epee (17 & older). These will start at 10:00 am. You should be done around 1:30. For the morning events, be there between 9:15 and 9:30 to register and to have time to warm up.
Afternoon events are 12 & Under Foil, Cadet Foil (16 & under), and Junior & Adult Foil (17 & older). These will start at 1:30 pm. You should be done around 4:30. For the afternoon events, be there between 12:45 and 1:00 pm to register and to have time to warm up
There will be a maximum of three rounds of fencing (if we have enough teams), each taking about an hour. Age groups may be combined if there are not at least six people signed up.
Collegiate format- each member of your team fences five touch bouts with each member of the opposing team.
National Training Group fencers, please come in and direct and coach the morning events, and you can fence an afternoon event for free! Lunch will be provided for directors. The new fencers need your expertise to make their event a good experience. And remember, someone did this for you when you were first starting out.
