Going to Qualifiers? READ THIS!

  1. You absolutely, positively, must be a Metropolitan division member in order to compete in these qualifying events. You should bring your USA Fencing card to the event with you (we will be verifying, on-site, against the latest national membership listing). If you are listed on USA Fencing’s national membership list as belonging to another division, we absolutely, positively, will not let you compete. Who you contacted, what they said, and/or what mistakes were made by you or USA Fencing do not matter. Your having missed your own division’s qualifying event, or failed to qualify through it, does not entitle you to attend the Metropolitan division’s qualifiers. If there is a legitimate issue, make sure the National Office fixes it beforehand or notifies the Metropolitan officers DIRECTLY.
  2. Foreign fencers are not allowed to fence as they may not compete at Nationals! Any fencer who is a citizen or permanent resident who has represented another country in the last three years is NOT eligible for any USA FENCING National Championship competition, individual or team, including corresponding Division qualifying competitions. A foreign fencer who is in the US on a visa is NOT eligible to fence in any National Championships or the Division qualifying competition. Otherwise, permanent residents are eligible; please bring your proof of residency along with your USA Fencing membership card. Your Membership card should say Metropolitan Division, not Egypt, Ukraine, France, or anywhere else!
  3. Every event requires registration by a specific date via AskFRED. To register, click “Register” next to the event you want to register for and you will be taken to the AskFRED registration system. After you register, confirm that your name appears under the correct events in the “Who is Pre-registered” list in AskFRED.
  4. You must show up for any events you register for, even if the number of registered competitors is less than the number of available qualifying spots. Fencers, even those that have registered, who do not appear in time for their events will be scratched and will not be submitted as a qualified competitor to the national office. The number of entered competitors, their placements in the event and/or the number of available qualifying spots will not be taken into consideration.
  5. BE THERE and BE ON TIME. If you have any problems registering, please immediately contact the host for that qualifier via the event page on Fred. As outlined by the National Office, attendance at an out of town school is not a valid excuse. We will be highly unsympathetic towards any excuses short of natural disaster, war and/or death (and for those at war, you technically belong to the National Division, so even that won’t work!).
  6. Ok, ok, but how do I know if I qualified? Visit the USA Fencing event page for the guidelines of qualification paths. Generally speaking the host of your qualifier should let you know, and we’ll post the qualifying fencers here within a week or so after the qualifiers are held; feel free to email the division to check your qualification status if it’s not posted within a week of the qualifying event. If you email right away, we may not have the answer! Sometimes there are membership issues or other questions to track down with the National Office that can affect the number of qualifiers, so please be patient.
