Tournament Rules

All fencers must be current Competitive members of USA Fencing or their national federation. If you do not have a current USA Fencing Competitive or Foreign Fencer membership, you will not be able to register online.

Full regulation uniform according to USA Fencing rules is required, including plastron, knickers, and knee-length socks. No jeans or sweatpants allowed. Names are not required on fencer uniforms.

For foil, masks with electric bibs are required for all events.

For épée, a conductive surface can ground out the opponent’s weapon. Épée fencers may NOT wear electric foil or saber masks. Two-weapon fencers must have two masks, or a mask with an exchangeable bib.

For Youth-10 events, a 30” or 32” blade is required. For Youth-12 and Youth-14 events, a standard 30”-35” blade is permitted.

Event Seeding

Fencer classifications, club and division affiliations, and national point rankings will be validated against the USA Fencing’s membership database as of April 18, 2024. It is the fencer’s responsibility to ensure that USA Fencing has properly recorded any necessary changes or corrections prior to that date. No classification or affiliation changes will be made at the event.

In all events, all ranked fencers (those possessing national points) will be seeded ahead of unranked fencers, regardless of classification. All unranked fencers will be seeded by classification letter and year.

Equipment Check

Please arrive early to allow time for equipment checks. We will be checking masks, lames, body cords, gloves, and foil/sabre mask cords.

Fencers who are in the Seattle area prior to the event can get equipment checked at Rain City Fencing Center on Thursday, April 18th from 6:00 – 7:30 PM.

We will also keep the equipment check open until 8:00 PM on Friday so that fencers competing on Saturday morning can get their gear checked.


Bellevue, Washington is served by Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA). Most popular airlines have several flights daily in and out of Seattle. The airport is approximately 20 miles from the hotels and venue.

There will be shuttle service from the hotels to the venue. Parking at the venue is extremely limited! We strongly recommend parking at the Sonesta Select Bellevue hotel and taking the shuttle to the venue.

A free shuttle will be running between Rain City and the Fairfield Inn throughout the competition. Guests staying at the Fairfield, Courtyard, and Residence Inn (all three hotels are adjacent to each other) are encouraged to take the shuttle to avoid the tight parking situation at Rain City.

The shuttle will operate on a loop and should make the circuit every 15-20 minutes.

Our shuttle will NOT be stopping at the Hampton Inn. They have their own shuttle which may be available as-needed, but it should not be relied upon.
