Youth Armoured Combat Activities

Organized and ran by Master Peregrine -  youthcombat@borealis.avacal.net

NOTE: Youth who are not yet authorized fighters must have a parent or guardian with them to help armour up, and ALL THE TIME they are fighting. Prospective fighters must wear closed toe shoes (runners are good) and wear long sleeved shirt and long pants (no bare skin), and bring any usable armour (cup or jill, hockey helmet, shin and elbow protection, body armour) they can.
If we can we would like to armour up, inspect, process paperwork, and authorize as many fighters as possible at this activity so the young people can spend as much time as possible participating during the remainder of the weekend. We would appreciate the help of any YAC marshals (Junior or Senior), or those wishing to learn, to support this and other Youth Combat activities.

Youth Armoured Combat Practice

For new fighters, their parents, and all experienced fighters who wish to help, there will be a Youth Armoured Combat Practice. It will consist of one hour of fighting time, beginning with basic training and combat, followed by fun scenarios if this can be done safely.

Kingdom Sponsored Youth Armoured Combat Prize Tournament

There will be a YAC Tournament following YAC Practice. This is a one hour event; the objective is to have all the wonderful youth fighters of Avacal meet each other so will be a round robin, and possibly some other surprise scenario if time permits. The winners for each division will be announced, but we will be seeking the best examples of Chivalry and most inspiring fighters.
NOTE: This tournament is for authorized fighters.

Youth Armoured Combat War Practice

There will be a YAC War Practice. This will be a two hour event. The objective is to have the assembled young army of Avacal practice teamwork and battle tactics; there will be traditional gate defence and bridge battles … and more FUN scenarios (Dwarves versus Ogres, Steal the Sheep, Crested Combat). Newer fighters are welcome but should attend the YAC Practice the previous day to get comfortable in armour – we will try to mark armour they use to help armour up quickly.
NOTE: Fighters who do not have authorizations must have a parent, or court appointed legal guardian, with them to help armour up, sign authorizations, and ALL THE TIME they are fighting. Prospective fighters must wear closed toe shoes (runners are good) and wear long sleeved shirt and long pants (no bare skin), and bring any usable armour (cup or jill, hockey helmet, shin and elbow protection, body armour) they can.

Youth Armoured Combat Tourchlight Tournament

The adult Armoured Combatants sometimes held a tournament on Friday night … so it sounded like a great new opportunity for Youth Combatants this year. This will be a great opportunity for young people to unwind from being cooped up in a hot vehicle for the long ride to unwind by hitting their friends and siblings with foam swords. If there is still magic in our glow sticks, we will try some scenarios to harness the magic. Quad Site is a wonderful place to be as darkness falls, and I hope this tourney will bring this wonderful event to life for our younger participants.

 

Please ensure that you and your youth are up to date on the rules and regulations require for combat. Parent or guardian must be present for all YAC fighting. The reference document can be found at the following:

Other Youth Activites

Organized and ran by Master Peregrine.

The Quest (Scavenger Hunt)

This will be the introductory event for youth learning and will involve considerable activity.  Children will be organized in teams to collect a list of items: locations on the site, heraldic devices, names of members of the peerages and groups, definitions of terms, etc.  The objective is to familiarize them with the Quad Site, and various aspects of SCA life and learning.

NOTE: This will involve travelling around the site.  We will attempt to team younger participants with older ones but parents must expect to accompany younger children in their quests.
