Youth Combat

Greetings to all Youth Fighters and their Parents and Guardians!

On Friday Night at Potrero War we will have our traditional "Torch Light" Tourney at the Open Ramada. It will begin at 6pm to allow folks arriving on Friday a chance to get settled in and set up.

On Saturday, there will be Melees on the field near Youth Point starting at 2pm. These will continue until you wear out the Marshals. As always we will start with the younger fighters and rotate them out as we go.

On Sunday, there will also be Melees on the same field starting at 2pm. These will continue until we have to stop for Court. We will try and organize it to allow the most play time possible depending on gear and room.

There will be loaner gear available, but the amount of gear available will be limited due to the number of fighters in attendance. If you have your own gear please bring it. Remember that your gear must be inspected for safety; if we ask you to use loaner gear (especially weapons) please do so.
