RULES FOR VETERAN COMPETITIONS
Adopted as of May 9, 2014, by the Veterans Committee of the Canadian Fencing Federation
Competition is open to any Canadian Veteran fencer age 40 and over with a validated CFF competitive license, and to international fencers as outlined in the CFF Rules and Regulations.
There must be one all-encompassing age category (40+), and these are the results that shall be submitted to the CFF for inclusion in the national rankings. The rankings shall reflect the Age groups of the ranked fencers.
Organizers will conduct separate competitions for ages 50 – 59, 60 – 69, and 70+ for men and women.
Where there are 6 or more competitors in each gender, separate competitions shall be run for men and women. Where there are fewer than 6 competitors in either gender, the competition shall be mixed.
Fencers will be seeded according to their CFF Veterans Ranking, or any other data to ensure the most accurate seeding possible at the discretion of the tournament organizers.
2.2 Round of Pools
The round of pools shall be conducted according to the standard FIE procedures (wherever possible, pools shall be no smaller than six and no larger than seven – see rule o.12 for more information).
At the discretion of the organizers, there may be two rounds of pools.
2.3 Direct Elimination
All fencers are promoted to direct elimination, without repechage, and will be ranked on the results of the pool.
Bouts in Foil and Epee will be to ten touches in two periods of three minutes, with a one-minute break between periods
Bouts in Sabre will be ten touches, with a one-minute break after the first competitor scores five touches.
Standard FIE procedures for abandonment shall be followed (see rules o.20 and o.25 for details).
The minimum standards for medals for Veteran’s Competitions are as follows:
Gold, Silver and two Bronze medals shall be awarded in each overall event.
In addition to medals for the overall events, organizers will award medals for each separate age group and gender event.
It is the responsibility of the fencer to ensure that personal equipment complies with the current CFF Equipment Standards for Competitions. The use of FIE standard clothing, masks and weapons is strongly recommended.
Conductive bibs for masks in Foil bouts are required. Sabre fencers must wear a conductive cuff or manchette.
The organizers may make changes in the format deemed necessary for the smooth running of the competition.
- Team competitions.
Teams will be comprised of three fencers and one optional alternate.
The combined age of the three youngest fencers on the team must be greater than 150 years. Tournament organizers may, at their discretion, waive this rule to promote participation. However, all fencers must be at least 40 years of age.
