In general, youth under the age of at least 16 (18 in some kingdoms) are not permitted to fight or fence with adults. Most if not all kingdoms now have youth fighter programs, and some have youth fencing, where the youth fight other youth in defined age groupings. Youth are permitted to do archery or thrown weapons in the company of a parent or responsible adult as soon as they are able to follow the safety rules. Youth under 18 are not permitted to handle group money either as an officer or as, for instance, a worker at the gate.
