In the U10 and U12 events the DE fights are to 10 hits in 3 bouts of 2 minutes with a gap of 1 minute. In the U14, U16, U18 events the DE fights are to 15 hits in 3 bouts of 3 minutes with a gap of 1 minute. All pool fights will be to five hits and last 3 minutes.
Masks must have a back strap and be in good condition. Plastrons must be worn and gloves must overlap the sleeve. Any fencer using a size five blade will be expected to be wearing an 800 Newton plastron and also 350 Newton breeches. Note that for the BYC finals qualifiers will be expected to have full kit. All sabre fencers are expected to have a glove that conforms to the new FIE specification of 800 Newton.

Important information:
The top FOUR fencers in each of the events will qualify to enter the National finals which will take place at The English Institute of Sport, Sheffield on 4-5-6 May 2019. Details of when the finals are to be held are outlined on British Fencing website. Any fencer who reached the last 8 in their event at last year’s BYC Finals may claim a bye in this year’s finals in the same weapon regardless of age group. FENCERS CLAIMING A BYE MUST ENTER THE REGIONAL QUALIFYING COMPETITION, but do not need to fence. Wherever they finish in the Regional Competition they will qualify for the finals event in ADDITION to the number of qualifiers calculated.
