I've only heard the term, but I've always assumed it was "boffer".

It's actually Govering and Policy Decision #12, "SCA COMBAT-RELATED
ACTIVITIES (July 1986, Rev. January 1992)":

    5. Minor Participants in SCA Combat-Related Activities: No person
    who has not attained his or her sixteenth (16th) may be authorized
    in armored combat or the marshalling of armored combat.  No person
    who has not attained his or her fourteenth (14th) birthday may be
    authorized for any form of SCA combat-related activity.
