Does anybody know if you earn cadet points at the Quads?
See you there!

unfortunatley not.

firstly the quads is a team competition - so you can't get any individual points.

secondly it is a the wrong age groups (U-16 and U-18) so you cannot score any GBR cadet (U-17) points.

you have to do the nominated opens, national champs and cadet foreign events to score cadet points.

Best to look at what the Cadets got points for last year and enter what the top guys got points in blue in. Or ask your team captain

This bit is correct!

Actually in sabre the system is different to the other weapons: points are awarded for almost all individual events (eg British Age Groups Championships at U18, U16, U14. LPJS at U17, U15, U13 and U11, all opens, cadet events etc, etc). However these count to the overall cadet ranking NOT the World Championships selection ranking for which you do need to do the nominated events. If you look at the rankings lists you'll see there are 2 different ones.

I think it's a much better system as the younger fencers get a chance to have a ranking (even if they're too young for opens etc.) so there are about 200 fencers on the cadet sabre list, as opposed to 50ish on the other weapons.

The cadet rankings has you as not a member of the Sabre Club. If you
want to be aware of all things sabre you should think of joining. You need
to get the newsletter as the web site is not up to date.
