The calendar includes Iowa tournaments, regional tournaments, and national tournaments that may be of interest to our fencers. With the exception of North American Cups, tournaments are free for spectators.
Registration and entry fees can range from as little as $20 for local events to upwards of $150 for North American Cup (national-level) events. In order to fence in sanctioned (most) events, athletes must hold a competitive USA Fencing membership, which is $85 for the 2020-2021 season. For the 20-21 season, fencers holding non-competitive memberships ($10) can fence one sanctioned event without having to upgrade to a competitive membership. Tournaments and travel arrangements will be discussed at practice and via email/phone. We encourage all of our fencers to compete at some level.
