Young was drafted again by The Legion at the start of the 2013 season. Over the course of the season some players for The Corsairs were displeased at how they were being utilized by King Chris Marchand and requested to be traded to other teams. Jena was eager to join Marchand's Corsairs as they not only had a good working relationship, but knew she would fit well into Marchand's style of Kingship. In the 2013 Championship Jena had a late Match fight against Manna Jaeger with Dueling Sabers which she lost.


Young was drafted by The Corsairs in the early part of the draft, however following Chris Marchand's sacking as King, she was one of many veteran players who opted not to join The Corsairs and return to free agency. Young, along with fellow 2013 Corsairs Johanna Gorman-Baer, Eric Cohen, Andrew Gullikson, Jon Bigelow, and Rachel Bigelow, were picked up by The Phoenix being some much needed veterancy to their roster. Young was asked to join The Phoenix's coaching staff and served as their Weapons Master during Matches.

The Phoenix finished the season with a near perfect record, only to lose to The Dragons in the championship match. Young lost a fight to Zac Delvanthal early in the game.


During the off season, Luis Rosa unexpectedly announced that he would not be returning as King of The Phoenix for 2015. Young was tapped to replace Rosa as King.

The Phoenix proved to be a much more chaotic force under Young's leadership on the board. Having inherited a team low on morale, Young focused much of the 2015 season on training and technique. The Phoenix quickly became known for putting on a good show for the audience.

Fighting StyleEdit

Young prefers Heavy Bladed curved weapons such as the Scimitar or Katana which works well with her movements style which is rooted in multiple styles of dance.
