Posted · Add Comment

 

 

The National Fencing Foundation of Washington, D.C., Inc. hosted its seventh annual Capital Clash SYC at the prestigious Gaylord National Resort, National Harbor, Maryland over the long weekend 15th – 17th January 2016. Drawing on youth fencers from as faraway as Mexico and Canada, the Capital Clash SYC has become one of the largest SYCs in the country and a fixture on the national SYC circuit.  The National Fencing Foundation of Washington, D.C., Inc. is a non-profit, educational organization dedicated to developing the personal character, academic achievement and athletic excellence of youth through the sport of fencing.

The first Capital Clash SYC was held in 2010 and attracted 430 fencers. This year, the tournament attracted 868 individual fencers who participated in 1,185 fencer events. This was made up of 553 youth men fencers who fenced in 740 fencing events (1.3 fencing events per fencer on average) and 315 youth women fencers who participated in 445 fencer events (1.4 fencer events per fencer on average).

Youth men fencers came from 144 clubs, an average of 3.8 fencers per club. Youth women fencers came from 114 clubs at an average of 2.8 fencers per club. About one-third of youth fencers came from clubs in the neighboring Divisions of Maryland, Capital and Virginia.  In all, one hundred and seventy nine (179) clubs from 44 Divisions were represented at the SYC. Of the 179 clubs represented, 60 or 33% made our Top 8 rankings.

The composition of fencer events for both men and women at the SYC is shown in the accompanying diagrams.

To be eligible for a ranking, a fencing club must have at least one of its fencers finish in the Top 8 of a Y10, Y12 or Y14 event at the Capital Clash SYC.  The Top 8 fencers in each competition automatically contributed to their club’s final ranking in the six gender-weapon categories. The rankings are based on a simple weighted 100-point system adopted by the USFA with points being awarded to the Top 8 fencers in each competition. The final rankings are derived by aggregating the Top 8 placement points for the fencers by their club representation.

The medal efficiency ratio measures the medals won by a club’s total fencer-events in the gender-weapon category and is designed to examine how well a club performed at the SYC based on the number of fencer-events generated by a clubs fencers who participated in the events, e.g., one fencer may have entered a Y12 and a Y14 event, generating two fencer-events. The higher the ratio, the more efficient a club was in winning medals in a gender-weapon category. Please refer to our methodology for further information on medal efficiency ratios.

The national rank following a fencers name in the tables below is the rank originating from the National Rolling Points Standings used for seeding this tournament. The # 1 ranked clubs in top 8 medal points for each gender-weapon category and therefore the best performing clubs at the SYC in no particular order were:

  • Fencing Academy of Westchester, NY (Youth Men’s Foil)
  • Nellya Fencers, GA (Youth Men’s Saber)
  • New York Fencing Academy, NY (Youth Men’s Epee)
  • Fencers Club, NY (Youth Women’s Foil)
  • Capital Fencing Academy, MD (Youth Women’s Saber)
  • Medeo Fencing Club, NJ (Youth Women’s Epee)
