3. To support the Barony in war and/or enter competitions for war points.

1. All entrants must be paid members of SCA, Inc.

2. All entrants must be at least 18 years of age except Youth Armored Combat Champion, who will be determined from the Dragon Division.


ALL ENTRANTS, including those for the martial arts, must present themselves in Opening Baronial Court on the day of the Championship when the competitors for each competition are called forth, to proclaim their intent to enter the Aquaterra Championship and receive the Invocation.


ALL ENTRANTS must submit proof of membership, modern and SCA names, and complete contact information (email if applicable, and phone) at the beginning of their competition on the day of the Championship. Failure to provide proof of membership will result in immediate disqualification. Entrants must assume responsibility for reading the rules of the specific Championship contest desired and complying with all parts of those rules.



I. Heavy Combat

Summon your might and honor to rise to the role of Champion upon the battlefield. First, competitors will face-off in a two 20min half-bearpit round. The victor will stays in the center during each round, and each successive fighter vying for points attempts to defeat the person in the center. Competitors earn points for every victory you win in the center (with the losing fighter will report to list the name of the person who won). Double kills are mutually destructive, meaning both fighters will go back to the line and two new fighters step up.

After the dust in the pit has settled, the top two fighters will face-off in a best two out of three-- with a caveat. This final round will need two successive victories before a winner is declared.

Armor inspection will begin promptly after Saturday morning court, with the tournament starting immediately afterwards. Please show respect to Their Excellencies, the marshals, and your fellow competitors by being punctual and prepared.
