Important things to know:

  • The Auto Qualifiers and the Top 32 ranked in the RJCC will qualify.
    • The Top 32 qualifiers are calculated after the Auto Qualifiers are removed.
  • Anyone ranked in the Top 32 in the RJCC (including ties) will qualify.
    • Example: Four fencers have the exact same points and are tied for the rank of 32 but only the Top 32 qualify. ALL four fencers with the same points will qualify.

The 2015 Junior Olympic Fencing Championships will be held in Richmond, VA at the Greater Richmond Convention Center.
