PROCEDURE FOR THE ENTRY OF A COMPETITOR IN MORE THAN ONE EVENT

Athletes may not take part in two (2) or more events in the same day unless their participation in the initial event has concluded prior to close registration/confirmation of any subsequent event. Athletes entering multiple events on the same day do so at their own risk; no refunds shall be provided.


ENTRY CANCELLATIONS

Cancellation of entry due to a medical condition: Full refund of EVENT fees, provided the CFF organizers are notified at least 48 hours prior to the event and a doctor’s certificate is submitted.

EVENT FORMAT

The event format can be found here: Canada Cup/Nationals Tournament Format


CLOTHING STANDARDS FOR CFF HOSTED COMPETITIONS

The event clothing standards can be found here: CFF Domestic Competition Equipment Standards

NOTE: Soft Chest Plate Covers

The CFF Armourers have considered the verification options for the soft chest plate covers required in foil.

Currently there is no independent, standardized method or test that armourers can use at the competition site to verify the specification of 4mm thickness and density of 22Kg/m3 (m4.c).

Therefore, only those covers validated through a third party will be allowed.

**AT THIS POINT IN TIME CHEST PLATE COVERS IN FOIL MUST BEAR THE HOMOLOGATION MARK OF THE FIE TO BE ACCEPTED AT CANADA CUP EVENTS.**

Chest plate covers must be the same size as the underlying plastic or metal chest plate, to ensure no voids exist between the two items.
