As SoCal Swordfight has grown by leaps and bounds (350 competitors in 2023!) we have to be proactive in addressing both scalability for future growth, and the desire to keep the focus on it being about the community coming together.

To this end we have made a significant judging change for 2024.

  • Every competitor will be required to line judge for one pool in each tournament they have registered to compete in.
  • Experienced directors will be scheduled by the event for all pool matches. A full judging team will be scheduled by the event for all elimination matches.

For the eliminations all of the judging staff are organized/scheduled by the event. 

Opting Out of Judging

Though we strongly encourage each participant to embrace this responsibility, we realize there will be some who simply do not want to judge. Choosing not to judge will incur a $25 fee, bringing the cost of individual tournament registration to $50 per tournament.
