A University of Maryland policy requires that all minors (under the age of 18) bring a waiver signed by a parent or guardian. Minors WILL NOT be permitted to fence in the absence of this waiver. We encourage you to bring this waiver with you to the event to give to the bout committee with your event fee. There will be copies available at the bout committee but we ask you to please have them completed before getting on the registration line to expedite our registration process. E-mails will be sent to all preregistrants periodically to remind you of this waiver. Thank you for your cooperation!
