All refs at USA Fencing sanctioned tournaments must have current USA Fencing memberships. All referees 18 and older must be Professional members and complete Safe Sport training. The Bay Cup will reimburse the cost of your Professional upgrade. Email us with any questions! If you have brilliant ideas for referee recruitment and development, let us know!
Contact tournament hosts through AskFred or email us, if you’re interested in refereeing any future events.
The Bay Cup is also continuing its annual referee reward program. We honor referees who come out to referee the most. The top 2 busiest Senior and Under 18 refs will receive complimentary Bay Cup season memberships for next season. This membership can be used by the winner or can be gifted to another fencer.
In addition to The Bay Cup referee rewards, the NorCal Division wants to encourage young referees in local events. NorCal will subsidize up to $750 of USA Fencing Memberships for the 2017-2018 Season.
To be eligible, you must be under 18 and referee a minimum of 3 Bay Cup events this season. Don’t miss out on your chance to have your national membership subsidized next season, and earn a little cash for your time well-spent!
