Competitions and training
Children and Youths who want to participate in the archery activities should have an adult supervising them while shooting on the Range.
According to SCA-rules the classification is done as follows:
Children - up to, and including, 10 years of age
Youth- 11 to 13 years of age
Adult from 14 years of age
To avoid misunderstandings about scoring, rules etc there will be a briefing and all questions are to be asked to the marshal-in-charge of that particular competition. General questions can be taken with the helping archery marshals.
The marshals will have a yellow and black baldric or arm band for identification.
