Tournament Details

Welcome to the 8th Annual SoCal Little Musketeers RYC and RJC in Region 4! We are hosting the tournament in the beautiful city of Torrance at the LA Galaxy Soccer Center!

The facility is a top notch facility with plenty of free parking and room for the competitors and their families.

The area is also rife with great activities for families to enjoy in the area.

There is the famous Del Amo Fashion Center that has plenty of food options as well as shops and entertainment as well as several museums in the area such as the Western Museum of Flight, Chen Art Center, and the Toyota USA Automobile Museum.

At the Del Amo Fashion Center in Torrance, customers can experience the height of luxury by browsing through one of the biggest shopping malls in the US. With 3 stories and over 2.6 million square feet of retail space, Del Amo Fashion Center is more than just a mall, it’s a landmark in its own right. Visitors will find a food court, movie theater, gym, and plenty of retail shops, including major anchor stores like Macy’s and Nordstrom as well as other shops from H&M and TJ Maxx to Kate Spade New York and Uniqlo. Shopaholics can browse and hunt for deals to their heart’s content, because Del Amo Fashion Center has both budget-friendly and high end luxury shops under its room.

The Western Museum of Flight is committed to educating its guests about the history of aircraft and aviation, as well as the preservation of aircraft and other artifacts to do with the industry. The Western Museum of Flight is a great destination for families, because inside the Air Museum, kids and adults alike can see and even touch or interact with some of the historic aircraft that made flight and innovation possible. The collection at the museum includes many types of aircraft, including military and commercial airplane components, many fully in tact, historic airplanes and drones, and components and accessories such as ejection seats, tools and instruments that date back to World War II, and more.

The Chen Art Gallery is more than just a gallery, it is an art museum that contains a huge collection of Chinese Art. The collection was once owned by Dr. Tei Fu Chen, a prominent pharmacist and herbalist. The collection of the Chen Art Gallery contains over a thousand amazing artifacts, which include works that span five thousand years of history in China. From pottery to jade carvings, and Buddhist statues to a complete bedroom from the Ming dynasty, the Chen Art Gallery provides an in depth and intimate look at Chinese art and history. Visitors to the gallery will be led on a tour by an experienced guide so they can best appreciate everything they see. Admission to the gallery is free, but visitors should call ahead to schedule their visit. The Chen Art Gallery is open from Tuesday through Friday, 10am to 4pm.

The Torrance Certified Farmers’ Market has been providing an excellent venue for merchants since 1985, when it was open on Tuesdays. The Tuesday market still exists, but now has expanded to include another day of business each week on Saturdays. The market, which is sometimes referred to as the Community Meeting Place, runs from 8am to 1pm, and it’s a spectacular place to support local farmers and producers while doing some grocery shopping, or purchase fresh herbs, good coffee, or homemade pasta. Visitors can purchase some fresh flowers to take with them, a fresh baked good to munch on throughout the day, or a pot of local honey to take home as a souvenir.


All of our strips and scoring machines will meet the space requirements to provide the best for both the athletes and the referees as well as coaches while fencers fence. All machines will have the score and time readily available so that it will make it easier for all involved.
