Seneschal’s Handbook – Youth Policies
The SCA Board of Directors has approved the language below to be used in the Society Seneschal’s Handbook. While we believe this to be a functional policy we wish to consult subject matter experts in the area of youth activities and further changes may be made in the future. We greatly appreciate thoughtful suggestions to policy language and welcome commentary.

Motion by John St. Dennis that Section X.3 “Dealing With Minor/Youth -Related Policies of the Seneschal’s Handbook be replaced with the following language effective immediately:
Parents or guardians of minors shall have ultimate responsibility for the welfare and behavior of their children at all times. It is the responsibility of the adult who brings a minor to an event to ensure that the minor is safe and not in danger. At events in which youth participate in any way, participating minors must either have a parent or legal guardian present at the event, or an accompanying adult present in possession of a properly executed “Medical Authorization Form for Minors.”
Notification of this change to the membership should be accompanied by the following announcement: “The SCA Board of Directors has approved the language below to be used in the Society Seneschals Handbook. While we believe this to be a functional policy we wish to consult subject matter experts in the area of youth activities and further changes may be made in the future. We greatly appreciate thoughtful suggestions to policy language and welcome commentary.”
