    Thank you for the welcome! I haven't found a team yet. Hoping to learn some about the N-SSA too.

    Here is a video I made about getting started in the SCA:

    It's mostly correct information.

    Here are some official N-SSA videos:

    Here are the places where skirmishes are held across the US:

    You are in the Carolina Region. Here is their web site:

    Joe,
    My advice. The N-SSA offers an individual 1 year membership, Join and attend the Spring National in May. Individuals have a campsite etc. Visit the teams you are considering at camp and on the firing line. See how they dress and how they shoot. You can see the equipment and how it's used. Find a team you are comfortable with.
