Waivers

Waivers can be found in the SCA Documents Library under the heading Minor Waivers/Medical Forms.

Waivers are to be used for each practice or event in which a youth fighter participates. Waivers are not necessary if the youth fighter can show a blue membership card (this denotes that the youth fighter has a waiver on file with the Society).

The child waiver is normally used if parents are present.

If parent or guardian will not be present, the notarized form is required for participation. Please note, however, that parents/guardians MUST be present in order for a youth fighter to authorize for tourney and melee combat.
