Good Gentles of the Populace:

As youth sports go, the price tag for ours is likely to make some families a bit leery of involvement, considering the ephemeral nature of children’s’ attention, and their inconvenient habit of changing size and shape. There aren’t a lot of families out there willing to plop down $150 or more on something that their child might not take to.

To that end, In an effort to engage more kids in the Calontir Youth Combat activities, I would like to respectfully ask the populace for donations, especially armor pieces (in good repair) that meet or exceed the minimum Calontir Youth Combat requirements. You can make it, buy it or dig it out of your basement if you like. As long as it is functional and looks like it will fit a child, I will happily collect it. If you’re not sure, please ask questions.

If you prefer money donations, those can be directed towards [log in to unmask]" target="_blank">Melodia. She will use it to buy “off the shelf” items from sales outlets that meet or exceed the KYC safety standards (youth hockey helmets and gloves for example).

With a little bit of support, we will have a chance to draw in all those kids on the edges who would play were it not for legal gear.
