Want to learn more about the SCA and what to do while staying active? You may be interested in our Newcomers Academy! Our Newcomers Academy is held every other month normally on the first Monday of the month at the same location as Open Arts & Sciences, which is listed on the Baronial Activities page. This is subject to change though we do create Facebook Events and send out emails.

The Newcomers Academy consists of six classes that are held throughout the year to help newcomers learn about the SCA and how to get involved! Here is a list of the classes we hold:

  1. Legal rules/Social rules and Etiquette
  2. What to bring at an event and What to wear.
  3. Personal Development and Heraldry
  4. Get Involved: Combat, Arts & Sciences, Service, etc.
  5. How to support diversity in the SCA
  6. History of the SCA.

On the off months that we do not have a class, we will have a Newcomers Meet & Greet on the first Monday of those months. Our goal is to hold at least 6 Newcomer Meet & Greet events every year.

We will continue to build the newcomers resources on a regular basis, so check back periodically for new additions!

Yours in Service,
