Spars

The four enforcers have the opportunity to choose between 6 different spars.

We at Sjufo recommend that you build your own spar as it gives you a greater knowledge of your chosen spar. Sjufo and our associations and teams often hold workshops. If you are new to jugger, we recommend that you participate in one.

When building spars, the basic definitions must be followed, this is a requirement for the matches to be as safe and fair as possible. As long as the definitions below are met, you can build the spar so it is optimized for you personally. Feel free to let your creativity flow regarding color choices, etc.

Security

Before a tournament, the spars must be approved so that:

  • they are safe
  • they are whole
  • the tips are soft
  • the measurements are correct
  • they does not violate any rule

The tournament manager has the authority to ban a spar in play if this endangers the safety of the players.
