    Event description

            Fencing North Secondary Schools Foil Teams Competition 

                                             IMPORTANT INFORMATION

     
           THIS REGISTRATION PORTAL IS FOR SCHOOL TEAM MANAGERS AND COACHES ONLY.


    The person registering teams is also in charge of distributing and forwarding any information concerning this event to team members (we will send updates to this person directly from this booking portal) 

    - The competition is for foil teams from individual schools and if entries permit, will have separate Men’s Team Foil and Women’s Team Foil events.

    Please remember that School teams are selected by the schools. You must make up school teams first. 

    Composite Teams may be formed ONLY where there are not enough fencers at a school to field the minimum team size of three fencers.

    Composite teams are allowed to win the competition and claim the title of regional winners. The winning school team will be awarded the top regional school award.

    - Mixed Gender Teams - we intend to run the event gender separated, but should a school have insufficient fencers to form a single gender team then as this is a regional competition we will allow entry of one mixed gender team from a school. 
    In this case we reserve the right to add the mixed teams to either the men's or women's events. 

    If you are an individual fencer looking to join a team contact us directly and we will do our best to find you a team.

    Please contact us direct at Fencing North Tournaments 

    Payment: 
    We will invoice schools for the number of teams entered after the event. Standard entry per team will cost $120.00 if entered before 11.55 pm on Friday May 31st. Entries after this time will cost S150.00  per team and are at the discretion of the DT. 

    Please read carefully. By going ahead with your registration you acknowledge that you are fully aware of our rules and regulations   

    IMPORTANT
    Schools may submit as many teams as they like, BUT we have a limit of 10 pistes and for various reasons there is a shortage of referees available at the moment. 
    We will do our best to accommodate all entries and will confirm entries with all schools by lunchtime on Thursday 6th June. 

    If we have to limit entries we will select the A team of each school first. Spaces still remaining will be filled by the B teams, on a first come, first serve basis. Composite teams are considered B teams for registration purposes. Any slots remaining after allocation to B teams will be allocated to C teams and so on. 

    Names of team members are not needed  at time of registration, unless you have made a definite selection. We will contact you requesting team composition during the week before the competition. Names can be provided on the day but no changes to the named fencers are permitted after registration/check-in on the day. 

    Certificates will be awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd equal placed teams only. 

    All team members are eligible for a certificate and will be asked to join their team on the podium.
