What is the SCA?
Members of the SCA study and take part in a variety of activities, including combat, archery, equestrian activities, costuming, cooking, metalwork, woodworking, music, dance, calligraphy, fiber arts and much more. If it was done in the Middle Ages or Renaissance, odds are you'll find someone in the SCA interested in recreating it.
For more information on the SCA please visit the SCA official website
The SCA is the parent organization of the shire, the kingdom and the Known World. Go HERE to officially join the SCA...which you won't have to do right away. Membership in the SCA does allow for voting in the shire, holding office and fighting. There is a non-member charge at most events but membership is NOT required to get into events.
How do I get involved with the Shire or the SCA?
What can I do in the SCA?
you can learn a new skill, participate in heavy (armored) combat, participate in rapier combat, thrown weapons, target archery, combat archery, equestrian skills and more.
If you want to fight in heavy combat you can show up to a fight practice and learn the safety procedures and slowly start to participate. Do not worry about buying or making armor right away, the shire has armor you can borrow.
If you want to focus on learning a new skill then you can show up to a monthly meeting or attend an event and take classes.
