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 $200 for North American Cup (national-level) events. In order to fence in sanctioned regional and national events (anything labeled RYC, RJCC, SYC, ROC, or NAC), athletes must hold a competitive USA Fencing membership, which is $85 for the 2021-2022 season. New for the 21-22 season, fencers can compete in local events with the Access level of membership, which is $25. Tournaments and travel arrangements will be discussed at practice and via email/phone. We encourage all of our fencers to compete at some level.
