Ranking of Fencing Club Performance at North Texas Roundup SYC, 5th-7th September 2015

Fencers at World Championships

The first Super Youth Circuit (SYC) of the fencing year was held at the Irving Convention Center, Las Colinas over the Labor Day weekend and marked the beginning of the 2015-2016 national youth tournament program, a program which generates points for national youth rankings. Hosted by the North Texas Fencing Coalition, a cooperative venture of the Fencing Institute of Texas, Cutting Edge Fencing Club, Gold Blade Fencing Club, and the North Texas Fencing Alliance and sponsored by Blue Gauntlet Fencing Company, the tournament attracted a large number of top ranked fencers from across the country for the eighteen youth events.

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 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 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 were:

  • Salle Mauro Fencing Academy, TX (Youth Men’s Foil)
  • Premier Fencing Academy, CA (Youth Men’s Saber)
  • Alliance Fencing Academy, TX (Youth Men’s Epee)
  • Silicon Valley Fencing Center, CA ( Youth Women’s Foil)
  • Laguna Fencing Center, CA ( Youth Women’s Saber)
  • Alamo Fencing Academy, TX (Youth Women’s Epee)
