History

This particular ROC is in honor of Coach Jeff Wolfe. This event is proudly held in his memory. Jeff Wolfe, a longtime coach at Brentwood High School, fenced at New York University. After graduating he became a teacher at Brentwood High School where he began both a Boys' Team and a Girls' Team. The Girls' Team was the first girls' varsity program on Long Island. During his tenure (1971- 1998) the Girls' Team had 18 undefeated seasons, 19 League Championships and 18 Sectional Championships. The team set a N. Y. State record winning 98 consecutive dual meets. Jeff Wolfe's W-L record at Brentwood was 388-14. Eight of his fencers became collegiate All- Americans. Four represented the United States in International competition. In 1987, he was the first recipient of the NFCAA Regional Coach Of the Year Award. In 1988 he was named to coach the US Cadet Team at the Continental Cadet Championships and the World Cadet Championships. Coach Wolfe was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2018. Coach Wolfe was a highly respected member of the fencing community, and is greatly missed by all those who knew him.

This Event is a Qualifier for Summer Nationals

Covid-19 SPECIAL GUIDELINES (subject to change)

1. Registration and armory will be conducted with a drive-thru format. More info will be sent to registrants.

2. Only competitors and coaches (active coach's membership required) will be allowed on the competition floor. Better viewing is from the streaming. We are trying to limit guardians in the venue.

3. All guardians and coaches must have proof of vaccination and are required to wear masks while in the venue.

4. Covid protocols might be changed at anytime and must be adhered to or you will be asked to leave the venue

Covid precautions taken:

HVAC upgrade to bring in fresh air and CDC approved filters installed.

Calculated Caps to accommodate safe distancing within our 30,000 square foot venue. Once the tournament has filled to the capped amount, a wait list will begin. Caps will only be raised, if other events at that time did not reach their caps.

Installed streaming cameras to allow great views of strips so spectators being inside the venue is not a necessity.

Continuous disinfecting and fogging.
