ABOUT THE CHAMPLAIN CUP

While the king’s musketeers were swashbuckling their way across France, their even more adventurous compatriots, among them Samuel de Champlain, were exploring the vast wilderness empire of New France. To celebrate our connection with that colorful era in history, and to create a Vermont fencing league dedicated to the ideals of amateur athletic competition for fun, camaraderie and personal satisfaction, in 1999 the Vermont Fencing Alliance established a perpetual cup to honor the mightiest swordsmen and women on Vermont soil. In 2002, the Champlain Cup series was inherited by the new Green Mountain Division. Out-of-staters are very welcome to join us in friendly rivalry and compete for the cup.

Here’s how it works:

Champlain Cup points may be earned at all Green Mountain Division meets, all season long. You earn 1 point for every event you participate in. You earn additional points for high placement, provided there are at least 6 people entered in your event (no placement points will be given for events with fewer than 6 entries, so get your friends to turn out for meets!). Points earned will be based on the difficulty level of the event as follows (note changes since last season in order to give more scoring opportunities to tougher tournaments):

For the following categories of open events, the top 80% of the field earn bonus points. Each place earns one bonus point less than the next higher place. First place bonus depends on the strength of the field as follows:

  • A4, A3, B3, A2/B3 event: 32 points
  • A2, B2, C2, A2/C3, B2/C3: 24 points
  • B1: 20 points
  • C1, C2 : 16 points
  • D1: 12 points
  • E1: 6 points

For restricted events (not mixed opens), the bonus point awards are as follows:

  • D and under event with 6-14 fencers: 4 points
  • D and under events with 15+ fencers: 5 points
  • E and under or U events with 6-14 fencers: 2 points
  • E and under or U events with 15+ fencers: 3 points
  • Event restricted by division age or gender with 6-14 fencers: 2 points
  • Event restricted by division age or gender with 15 + fencers: 4 points

Grand prize: the leaders at the end of the season in each weapon will each have their names engraved on a perpetual cup (to be displayed at all Champlain Cup meets the next season). In addition, each receives a trophy. The person who scores the most combined points across all 3 weapons receives custodianship of the Champlain Cup Leader’s Sword (a beautiful replica rapier) for the season, but must pass it on to the next season’s winner.

Other awards (trophies presented at the end of each season): 2nd and 3rd place overall in each weapon, best veteran (born 1968 or earlier), best youth (Y12 age group-born 2006 or later), “rookie of the year” (best finish for a fencer with less than 2 years total experience, first full season in league). Past seasons winners are listed on the results page.
