The British Youth Championships (BYCs) 2022 will take place on 30th April-2nd May 2022 at EIS Sheffield.

Following a two-year absence due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the British Youth Championships (BYCs) returns for 2022. The 3-day competition sees fencers from across the UK represent their Region at the National Event in all three weapons in U12, U14, U16 and U18 age categories.

Event Details

Venue: EIS Sheffield, Coleridge Rd, Sheffield, S9 5DA

Dates: Saturday 30th April-Monday 2nd May 2022

Fencers qualify for the event through Regional Qualifying Events (RQEs) which are held by each Region in the months leading up to the BYCs. Once your Region has scheduled your RQEs, more information can typically be found on your Region’s website and will also be listed on the BF Calendar.

Scheduling Note: BF understands that for some age groups, the dates for the BYCs is close to examinations and/or busy periods in the school year. However, due to the nature of the 24 weapon event, we require 38-42 pistes and 3 full days of competition. Dates and venues which have the capacity to hold such an event is limited.
