We understand that the United States Fencing Association (USFA) is continuing to monitor the global situation regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19). The USFA has taken (and will continue to take) a number of actions, temporary rule changes and event postponements and cancellations (and make recommendations) in the interest of the health and well-being of its members. For updates, please follow the Latest News on USFA’s website: www.usafencing.org/page/show/2337618-news-and-media .
Please note that the USFA has postponed the Super Junior and Cadet Circuit (SJCC) in Anaheim, which was scheduled for March 13-15. In addition, the RJCC in Pasadena on March 21-22 has been cancelled. The Southern California Division of USFA (SoCal Division) will continue to monitor the situation, following the lead of its parent organization (the USFA).
The SoCal Division has determined that it will not sanction any additional fencing tournaments at this time. Moreover, the Division may pull sanctioning from previously-approved tournaments as needed out of respect for the health and safety of its members. We will continue to monitor the situation and work with the USFA and the clubs within our geographic region. We hope that with guidance from the USFA and an improvement of the situation, we can all go back to as much of normalcy as possible, including the sanctioning of local tournaments.
