For the Marshals


Be a marshal. Teach.

For many of the youth and their parents, you represent the first link they have with the East Kingdom and the Society. Be prepared to answer questions as a chatelaine and fix and build armor and weapons. Avoid sending a fighter away from the list with failed weapons or armor. Instead, try to help them fix their gear. Get them moving. Be a bridge between the modern middle ages and the world outside!

EKYC Marshallate Guidelines

Society Seneschal Memorandum
The rules of the East Kingdom require youth marshals to have a valid background check and supervise practices using a '2 deep' model. This means that practices are coached by two adults who are not related to one another. One of them must have completed the background check.

Marshals should also know what their charges will be reading and following:
EK Youth Combat Rules revised January 2019.
and EK Div 4 Youth Rattan revised November 2009.

We also have a handy checklist to help marshals stay organized. It includes items to prepare the list field, things to remember when checking equipment, and other necessaries for Youth Combat Marshals.
Marshal's Checklist for Events
Marshal's Checklist for Practices

For the time when a fighter/parent has constructed a helmet, here are the Helmet Construction Guidelines.

If you have a Google Mail account (GMail), you can add the EK Youth Combat calendar to your own calendar, so any changes made online will show in your calendar. It's a very handy tool.
