How to get your tournament sanctioned
To be able to award classifications at your tournament, your event must be sanctioned by the Division. To request your tournament be sanctioned, email your request to firstname.lastname@example.org, and include the following:
- Desired date, as well as one alternate date
- Name of the event (if it has one)
- Location of event (provide the city, if the exact venue is not known)
- Weapons that will be fenced
- Any additional restrictions such as format, age and gender (e.g. Team, Mixed Vet Combined, Y14 Women).
- If you are submitting more than one event request, indicate your priority order (the Scheduling Committee will attempt to schedule the first priority event for each club, before proceeding to the second priority, etc.).
Below are links to National Events, SAT/PSAT, and religious holidays to take in account for the 2016-17 season. While clubs are free to schedule events on these dates, the Division will attempt not to schedule qualification tournaments, to avoid potential conflicts for its fencers.
