MI DIV provides official sanctioning for fencing tournaments organized by member fencing clubs, subject to USA Fencing rules and regulations. Sanctioned tournaments are insured by USA Fencing and give fencers an opportunity to earn nationally-recognized ratings (A-E). The Division runs two qualifying tournaments each year where MI DIV fencers can qualify for national-level championships. The Junior Olympic Qualifier (Junior and Cadet) is held late Nov/early Dec, and the Summer Nationals Qualifier (Div II, Div III, and Y-14) is held in spring.
The Division keeps and maintains an inventory of grounded strips and scoring equipment (scoring machines, reels, weights, shims, etc.) which is made available to local tournament organizers.
