Rain City Fencing Center is pleased to announce the return of the Rain City Super Youth Circuit in 2022! SYCs are national point events for Y10, Y12, and Y14 fencers. Fencers from all over the western US, Canada, and beyond are expected to compete.
Note: We have increased the size of some events as much as our capacity allows. Fencers currently on waiting lists may be able to join if another fencer cancels.
Friday, April 29th

All times listed are close of check-in. Fencing will start within 10 minutes of that time, so be ready!
All events will be fenced as a single round of pools, followed by straight direct-elimination.
Per USA Fencing guidelines, all events will be fenced with boys and girls separate. Events will not fence mixed under any circumstances. Medals will be awarded to the top 8 finishers in each event. National points will be awarded to the top 40% (rounded up) in each event.
All competitors, officials, spectators, and coaches must wear face coverings over their nose and mouth at all times, regardless of vaccination status. Referees will be enforcing this policy strictly.
Minor athletes may be accompanied by one parent or guardian in the venue. All spectators and parents must remain in the lobby or upstairs on the mezzanine. Only athletes, officials, and coaches are allowed on the fencing floor.
All fencers, spectators, coaches, and officials will be required to provide proof of vaccination, or a negative COVID-19 test result from no more than 72 hours prior to the event. We will be verifying that status at the entrance and providing wristbands for access. RCFC fencers and parents will be able to provide vaccination proof during the week before the event if they have not already done so.
