Practices are gradually resuming in accordance with local health directives

Although the SCA complies with all applicable laws to ensure the health and safety of our event participants, we cannot eliminate the risk of exposure to infectious diseases during in-person events. By participating in the in-person events of the SCA, you acknowledge and accept the potential risks. You agree to take any additional steps to protect your own health and safety and those under your control as you believe to be necessary.

The SCA Bullying and Harassment policy is in effect. It is an attendee’s responsibility to be familiar with and understand this policy.

The SCA prohibits harassment and bullying of all individuals and groups. Harassment and bullying includes, but is not limited to the following: *offensive or lewd verbal comments directed to an individual; *the display of explicit images (drawn or photographic) depicting an individual in an inappropriate manner; *photographing or recording individuals inappropriately to abuse or harass the individual; *inappropriate physical contact; unwelcome sexual attention; or retaliation for reporting harassment and/or bullying. Participants violating these rules are subject to appropriate sanctions. If an individual feels subjected to harassment, bullying or retaliation, they should contact a Seneschal, President of the SCA, or the Kingdom’s Board Ombudsman. If a participant of the SCA becomes aware that someone is being harassed or bullied, they have a responsibility pursuant to the SCA Code of Conduct to come forward and report this behavior to a Seneschal, President of the SCA or Kingdom’s Board Ombudsman.”
