What is Team Longsword?

Team Longsword is an 3-fencer team event designed to to promote school spirit and healthy competition between groups, rather than just between individuals. All participants are eligible to participate. Teams will be registered the day of the tournament. Each team must consist of members of the same school or club. Those without a club or who do not have enough participating members will be randomly assigned to mixed school teams at the end of registration
