Junior - Fencers born 1986 or later
Youth 14 - Fencers born 1991 or later
Youth 12 - Fencers born 1993 or later
Youth 10 - Fencers born 1995 or later (required to use a #2 blade)

Team Dual Meets: Fencers are divided into teams based on age or grade. Each team member fences between one and three individual bouts to a team score of fourty-five touches or best of nine series (depending on age group). The Championship team (per age category) is calculated on a win-loss basis and recognized at the Awards Banquet at the end of the season.
Individual Utah Cups: Three Utah Cups are hosted throughout the season and are held on Saturdays. These tournaments are not team and provide an opportunity to earn Utah State Points and gain more individual competition experience. The format of these tournaments is a preliminary round with bouts to five touches followed by a direct elimination round where bouts are fenced either to fifteen touches (Junior and Y14) or the best two out of three five touch bouts (Y12, Y10, Y8).
League Championships and Awards Banquet: The championships are held in late April and include a tournament and awards banquet. All League members get a comemorative t-shirt, excellent food and are awarded for their participation and results throughout the season. This is a great opportunity to bring friends and family to share in your child�s experience (everyone leaves with something).
Membership Fee: Every fencer in the UYFL pays a $50.00 membership fee which includes entrance to ALL tournaments and the awards banquet. A very good deal!
