Each year, representatives from Colorado fencing clubs gather to set the local competitive schedule. The meeting for the 2018-2019 season was held at Denver Fencing Center on June 3, 2018.
At that meeting, the club representatives made a focused effort to equally divide the competitions between the host clubs. This season, there will be 5 Colorado Cups, 5 Colorado Youth Cups (including RYCs), 3 Veteran events, 2 C & Under, 2 D & Under, 1 E & Under, 4 Unrated, and 3 Senior Open. The local clubs agreed that any competition other than a qualifier or a Colorado Cup can be added to the local schedule, as long as the organizing club gives the Executive Committee notice and publishes the event at least 30 days before the tournament date.

Colorado Cup Point Standings
The Colorado Cup is a series of local senior-level competitions held within the Colorado Division. Fencers who compete in these competitions are awarded points based on their results. At the end of the season, plaques are awarded to fencers who finish in the top three of the points standings. Fencers must compete in a minimum number of competitions to be eligible for a plaque: Vets must fence at least 2 cups, seniors fence 3/6 cups, youth fence minimum of 3 cups to get a plaque.
