East Midlands BYC Qualifier 2017

Sunday 19th March 2017

– registration is now closed (as of Friday 10th March).

Competition Information

The East Midlands BYC Qualifier is a competition to qualify fencers for the national finals of the British Fencing Youth Championships. Fencers gaining first, second or equal third place in the East Midlands BYC Qualifier are eligible to progress to the National Finals.

Fencers MUST be registered to the East Midlands Region with British Fencing to enter this qualifying round.

If a Fencer decides not to go to the British Fencing Youth Championships, the qualification place will pass down to the next available fencer.

If a Fencer already has a bye to this year’s British Fencing Youth Championships, they are still welcome and encouraged to compete at this EM BYC Qualifier event. Fencers with a bye still automatically qualify for the National Finals wherever they position, and the extra qualifying place will pass along to the next available Fencer.
