Membership: All participants must hold a valid CFF licence and provincial membership at the time of competition. Holders of a “Special Recreational Membership” (i.e., “School Program” participants) are eligible to complete.

Format: All events (team and individual) are mixed gender.

Individual: one round of pools (5 touch bouts or 3 minutes) followed by 100% advancement to direct elimination (DEs).

  • – In U15 and U17 events, DEs will be to 15 touches or a maximum of three periods of 3 minutes to final.
  • – U13 and U11 events, DEs will be to 10 touches or a maximum of two periods of 3 minutes to final.

Team: teams may consist of 3-4 fencers (a fourth team member must serve as an alternate).

  • – Teams will be seeded into a tableau based on individual results of corresponding age event from the previous day. Fencers who participated in a different age category in the individual (e.g., fencers on a U17 team who did U15 but not U17) will count as unranked, but will be sorted after the ranked fencers in that event.
  • – Teams will fence for each position (including 3rd place/bronze).
  • – All team matches will be a relay of 5-point bouts (or 3 minutes) to 45.

Overlapping events: A fencer registered in overlapping events may be asked to withdraw from one event if the overlap causes a significant delay in either event.

Disclaimer: The East Coast Games Tournament organizers reserve the right to modify the elimination round of an event or adjust the format at any time.
