Youth Armored Combat Schedule

On Sunday, August 6, we’re holding a class for marshals-in-training — if you’re a youth combat marshal, or would like to join our ranks and build the Known World’s youth combat program for the next generation, join us!

All youth armored combat activity takes place on our list field, located between the main gate and the battle field.

•  Open Sparring sessions are our most frequent activity on the youth armored combat field. They are open to all divisions and will typically include one-on-one sparring. At the discretion of the marshals, these sessions may also be mixed with specific training activities, small melees, or other activities.

• Battlefield Games sessions are on the youth armored combat field. They are open to all divisions and will involve battlefield simulations, games using props, classic games (brought back by marshals of old), and general youth combat fun.

• Fighters’ Choice/Alternative Tournament date will be the last youth combat session on the youth list; fighters will be allowed to vote on their activities to be run on list. Last hour of the session will have youth helping clear out and take down the list with all marshals present. If bad weather required cancellation of one of the tournaments from earlier in the week, this session can be instead used as the rain date.
