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.

Cadet Team Event:

  • The fee to participate in the cadet team event is $20 per person
  • Team size will be 3-4 people depending on registration numbers
  • Teams can be formed by submitting a team roster at the event in advance of the team competition, or by simply registering individually, with teams populated using the Cadet Individual rankings/results.
  • Team seeding will be based on the combined individual results from the Cadet events
  • Format will be determined based on number of entries
  • Medals will be awarded to the top 3 teams with additional prizing awarded to the top team.
  • Participation is strongly encouraged as the team event is a priority within the CFF High Performance Program and may be made mandatory in the future for HP Program athletes.

CLOTHING STANDARDS FOR CFF HOSTED COMPETITIONS

UNIFORMS

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.
