Eligibility: A fencer will be limited to 5 years of competition at any college level. This is 5 years in which a fencer competes for any team(s) in any intercollegiate competition (NCAA and/or club) for even one bout in a given year. There will be no prior vetting of any fencers but adequately substantiated challenges will be verified. If the Board determines that a fencer has exceeded their eligibility, a one year suspension from USACFC will be given to the fencer's team. That team and all of its fencers, coaches, and staff will be black carded / disqualified from the event IMMEDIATELY, NO DISCUSSION, and its results for the event will be vacated. That team will be ineligible to compete in any USACFC event through the end of the following calendar year and will have to re-apply to the USACFC (forfeiting all incumbency priorities, if any) to resume participation thereafter.
The USACFC follows the rules of USA Fencing and the NCAA, including the black card policy. Any behavior by any team, individual fencer or coach which meets the criteria for a black card will be issued one. Examples include but are not limited to any harassment or threatening of referees, bout committee workers, athletes, coaches, or USACFC officers. As the event has grown and received more attention, all involved in the championships must continue to work to make it a positive competition. Inappropriate or unsporstmanlike behavior can result, when warranted, in additional sanctions, suspensions, etc.
