Secondary School Fencing Circuit 2014
Welcome to this year’s Secondary School Fencing Circuit! Fencing North are very excited to hold this event again and can’t wait to kick it off.
The 2014 Secondary School Circuit is due to start on the 10th May. The circuit is split into two components, an individual series and a team series. The individual series runs across four weekends, 10th May - 24th May - 7th June - 21st June, the teams series runs across two weekends, 2nd August and 16th August (and potentially a third weekend, 30th August, depending on number of teams entering). The circuit and is open to anyone currently at primary or secondary school and the weapons fenced this year will be foil and sabre.
The format of the competitions are as follows:
The first three weekends are run as competitions with both poule and elimination rounds. The fourth weekend will run as an elimination competition using results from the first three rounds to determine rankings. If you attend all of the competitions you have a better chance at getting higher rankings.
The first weekend of the team event will involve running of team poules. The second weekend will involve a team elimination round based on results from the poule round the previous weekend. There can be up to 4 fencers of any gender in a team (3 fencing + 1 reserve), so long as you all attend the same school.
There will be a party after the finals on the last day of each competition, friends and family are welcome to come along!
