OFA Sanctioned Tournament Specifications

The OFA Competitions Committee has prepared a document covering event hosting best practices to aid in the hosting of OFA sanctioned events. Please review the recommendations in the OFA Sanctioned Tournament Sepecifications.

CFF Tournament and Domestic Results Submission

The CFF Tournament sanction application form offers the following:

  • Having your event posted on the CFF Website (we recommend sending it in at least 1 week ahead of time to promote viewership on our website's calendar, but the earlier the better! Please allow 2 business days from submission to have your event posted.)  You can also submit this form to have clinics, symposiums, fundraising events and/or any other fencing related event you are hosting that you want to be, posted in the calendar.
  • In the case of a tournament, if your event meets the criteria you can have the results added to our Domestic Rankings.

The CFF Tournament results submission form is used for:

  • Payment for each event ranking file.
  • Please note that the first event is "discounted" (as it was paid for in the Sanction Application Form).

A number of reference documents on event hosting can be found on the CFF website under “Event and Results,”
