The Iowa Saber League scoring system will be used. Hands and feet do not count as points (unless hand is not on the hilt when hit). Arms and legs being 1 point with torso and head is 2 points. 3 minute round to 10 points.

Good sportsmanship is important and will be expected from all competitors.

All sabers will be inspected and must be safe to compete.
