Tournaments

FCAZ encourages all fencers to test their skills and grow by competing in tournaments.  The table below lists the tournaments FCAZ recommends, or will be sending fencers to  compete.  These tournaments comprise 3 different levels of competition that you can choose to match to your skills (and budget).

  1. Local or Divisional Tournaments – where you can fence against other local fencers and a few out-of-towners
  2. National/Regional tournaments sponsored by USA Fencing.  These tournaments will allow you to gain national points and ratings.
  3. International Tournaments sponsored by the FIE.  These tournaments often have significant qualification criteria as they feature the best fencers from around the world.

The table below will provide you with a quick list of tournaments.  But more importantly, it will also specify (where known) the deadlines for application.  Failure to register by the deadlines can result in a significant escalation of cost (3x-6x the regular cost), and if taken to the extreme, will result in you not being able to register at all.

RESULTS: All results for each tournament can be found by clicking on the event name (if the tournament has occurred in the past)
