Ranking of Fencing Club Performance at Steve Sobel SYC 26th-28th February 2016

Posted · Add Comment

The fourth Steve Sobel SYC was held at the New Jersey Convention and Exposition Center, Edison NJ over the weekend 26th-28th February 2016. Drawing on youth fencers from across the U.S. and Canada, the Steve Sobel SYC was the second largest SYC in the country this year, eclipsed by the highly successful Capital Clash SYC in January 2016.

The first Steve Sobel SYC was held in 2013 and attracted 783 fencers from 127 clubs who participated in 1025 fencer events. This year, the tournament attracted 746 individual fencers who participated in 971 fencer events. This was made up of 451 youth men fencers who fenced in 572 fencing events (1.3 fencing events per fencer on average) and 295 youth women fencers who participated in 399 fencer events (1.3 fencer events per fencer on average).

Youth men fencers came from 114 clubs, an average of 4 fencers per club. Youth women fencers came from 94 clubs at an average of 3.1 fencers per club. About 70% of youth fencers came from clubs in the neighboring Divisions of New Jersey, New England, Metro NYC, West-Rock and Long Island. In all, 138 clubs from 32 Divisions were represented at the SYC. Of the 138 clubs represented, 53 or 38% 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 Steve Sobel 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)
  • Manhattan Fencing Center, NY (Youth Men’s Saber)
  • New York Fencing Academy & Fencers Club, NY (Tied for Youth Men’s Epee)
  • Gold Fencing Club, MA (Youth Women’s Foil)
  • Manhattan Fencing Center, NY (Youth Women’s Saber)
  • New York Fencing Academy, NY (Youth Women’s Epee)
