This year is a bit different.
Covid update: Currently all we need to do is contact tracing, a requirement by Trusts. Please register as spectator/coach or official and write n/a in the question section. This event will only be run if Auckland is at Level 2 or below. You will be contacted by the organiser if the event is cancelled.
The Fencing North Secondary School Teams will be fenced by school teams or composite teams. All fencers must be at secondary school level or below (please contact your coach to find out whether this event is suitable for a younger fencer’s ability).
This Fencing North tournament is a mixed gender event.
You must make up school teams first.
Only if you do not have enough fencers, you are allowed composite teams. Composite teams are allowed to win the competition and claim the title of regional winners.
Schools can submit as many teams as they like.
Given however that we have the limitation of 8 pistes (16 teams) we will select the A team of each school first. Spaces still available, will be filled by the B teams. Composite teams are considered B teams. In the unlikely event that we have more registration than spaces we will also consider who registered first. Should there be uneven numbers, historic data and the results from the individuals, where applicable, will be used to determine the byes.
Allocations are as follows:
The first 7 A teams registering will get an immediate confirmation of registration. This is separate email to the registernow confirmation, which only recognises that you have entered the selection process.
The next 7 spaces are allocated to B or composite teams. Same process: we will send a separate confirmation email. Should there still be places available, they will be filled with subsequent teams.
Should we have less than 16 teams all the teams entered will fence.
Short: enter early and you know early.
The named teams may consist of up 5 members or a minimum of 3. If you do have 5 members, please consider forming a composite team.
Contact us if you are looking for additional fencers.
Ideally we would like to know who is in the team. We have to set up the event the day before and it is a lot easier if we have prepared the entry list. A lot of school fencers don’t have a Fencing Time record. You can imagine how much it slows us down if we have to name the fencers of each team on the day. We do allow changes up until check in.
A maximum of four (of these five) members must be selected to be in the team before the team's event starts. Changes are allowed up the 20/08/2020. After it is discretion of the DT.
No changes to the named are permitted after check in. Realistically you will have 3 in each team. Those need to be named.
All five members are eligible for a medal and will be asked to join their team on the podium. Medals will be awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd placed teams only.
The format for this competition is tbc. It depends solely on registration numbers. Register early, know early.
Closer to the event date we will publish a timetable. However teams are busy events. Please anticipate a full day of fencing.
Any questions about the Fencing North Teams event please email us on Fencing North Tournaments
Due to this unprecedented times we decided to go ahead with the team competitions. We also decided this to be about the schools here at Fencing North and not a regional competition. The focus has been this year to get as many schools involved as possible. We also want to make this a fun, fair and friendly competition.
We’d like to apologise for any confusion and inconvenience. We are working hard behind the scenes to adapt.
