The San Diego Cup is a series of tournaments held locally for Youth, Junior, and Senior fencers. Every year 6-8 events are held for each age group, and a points list is kept, with awards being given out to the points champions at the end of the season. Events are held at different clubs around the county, giving the "home team" fencers an easy chance to participate at their club and the "visiting" fencers to practice with those they normally wouldn't get to.
This season, Encinitas Fencing Academy will be hosting events in October and December of 2017 and May 2018. We hope to have fencers competing in each of the age groups this year! The full slate of events is posted at AskFRED.net, and event dates can always be found on our Calendar page. The event your fencer is eligible for is determined by the year of birth. If you're not sure what age group you or your fencer qualifies for, here is the current season's chart from USA Fencing.
