2021-22 Registration Now Open

2021-22 Registration Now Open

The 2021-2022 Judo Alberta Registration Information is now available!

Judo Alberta and Judo Canada registration fees are non-refundable once submitted on Trackie. Registrations for the 2021-2022 Season opened on July 1. There are no fee changes from 2020-2021.

• All members must have a waiver signed at the club or the club needs to ensure one is put into Trackie for members to acknowledge.
• At the end of each month, Judo Alberta will send invoices to clubs for members registered during the past month. These invoices are due immediately. Payments can be made by cheque and sent to Judo Alberta office or through eTransfer to ap@judoalberta.com.
• All membership and other fees are due to Judo Alberta before the next season registration can be done for each club.

CLUB INFORMATION – To be completed and submitted to the Registrar (registrar@judoalberta.com) and Judo Alberta (judo@judoalberta.com) so Club information is kept up to date. All Judo Alberta clubs are required to have all their members sign a liability waiver. If you have any questions or need assistance creating a waiver, please contact the Judo Alberta office.

MEMBER INFORMATION – Each member can complete this form to assist the Club in completing Judo Canada’s online registration. DO NOT send this form to the Registrar or Judo Alberta offices; it is strictly for club use.
Encourage members who self-identify as First Nations, Metis, Inuit, or have a disability, indicate this on their form or online registration. This information assists in programming.

PROMOTIONS— Promotion form is to be filled out completely including qualified Examiner/Sponsor indicated. Both this form and payment need to be received before Promotions will be registered and processed. All Promotions must be registered with Judo Alberta; unregistered promotions could cause delays or fines (ie. Shodan grading, tournament registrations, Nationals, Alberta Winter Games, Canada Winter Games, etc.).

When submitting promotions, group them by ranks and then each of those ranks in alphabetical order. If you have a lot of promotions, a separate sheet for each rank, in alphabetical order helps.

PIPEDA & CONFIDENTIALITY AGREEMENT – Each club member should complete this document. The original is kept by the Club with access by Judo Alberta should the need arise. A PIPEDA Agreement for members does not need to be completed each year; just once for as long as they are a member. Judo Alberta only needs to be provided with a copy of the Exclusion List.

The Confidentiality Agreement needs to be completed by all club members who have access to personal information within the club structure. This would include the coaches and registrar, as well as any board members who have access to private contact or medical information. Time should be taken by the registrar and/or head coach to reinforce the importance of maintaining the privacy of all athletes, volunteers and coaches.

Subject:     Judo Alberta Covid-19 Restrictions Amendment

Good afternoon, Judo Alberta Members,

Please be advised that the Judo Alberta executive has made an amendment to the motion that was approved in September 2021 regarding the decision to apply restrictions to specific Judo Alberta sanctioned events until the Alberta State of Public Health Emergency is declared over.

The formerly approved motion by the JA executive: To postpone all Judo Alberta tournament events until further notice. All regional/provincial training camps, NCCP clinics, and gradings will be permitted without any spectators. Only participants over the age of 12 with proof of vaccination are permitted to attend. Single vaccinations will be accepted until October 24th. Starting October 25th double vaccinations will be required as per Government of Alberta regulation.”

The newly approved amendment by the JA executive: As of Nov 29,2021, Judo Alberta will follow the AHS Restriction Exemption Program (REP) for all future events, including tournaments, clinics, training camps, and all other sanctioned events. For events being held in public or private facilities, Judo Alberta will follow the facilities rules as long as those rules follow the AHS protocols.

Restrictions Exemption Program

Restrictions Exemption Program

Hello Judo Alberta Members,

It has been a busy 24 hours, but following the recent announcement of the Covid-19 update by the Government of Alberta, it was decided by the Judo Alberta Executive Committee that it is of the best interest for our membership to postpone all Judo Alberta sanctioned events until the “Alberta State of Public Health Emergency” is declared over. We will monitor the current situation closely and make adjustments as needed.

Starting September 20th, 2021 Judo Alberta will be following the Restrictions Exemption Program for all sanctioned Judo Alberta events as outlined by the Government of Alberta https://www.alberta.ca/covid-19-public-health-actions.aspx. Between now and September 20th, everything will be business as usual.

WHAT THIS MEANS

  • proof of vaccination
    • single dose accepted between September 20 and October 25 if received 2 weeks before time of service
    • double doses required after October 25
  • documentation of a medical exemption
  • proof of a privately-paid negative PCR or rapid test within 72 hours of service (tests from AHS or Alberta Precision Laboratories not allowed)

*It is recommended that all members access their records at https://myhealth.alberta.ca/myhealthrecords. More details to follow regarding proof of vaccination processes.

  • screen for symptoms
  • maintain 2 metres distancing, except youth while engaged in physical activity

    • Indoor group classes and activities are not permitted.
    • Indoor competitions are paused except where vaccine exemptions have been granted.
    • Indoor one-on-one training and solo activities are allowed with 3 metre physical distancing.
    • Outdoor activities can continue with no restrictions.

TRU EARTH Athlete Fundraiser

TRU EARTH Athlete Fundraiser

Judo Alberta is teaming up with TRU EARTH to raise money for our Judo Alberta athletes and programs. This is a great opportunity for you to help support Judo Alberta by purchasing these fantastic TRU EARTH products.

TRU EARTH Eco-Strips are the smarter way to clean laundry. Each laundry strip packs ultra-concentrated, hypoallergenic, eco-friendly cleaning power into a tiny, pre-measured strip of liquidless laundry detergent that you just toss in the wash. Its low-sudsing formula works in all types of washing machines, including high-efficiency (HE). The smart hypoallergenic laundry detergent formulation effectively seeks out and dislodges dirt molecules and stains, keeping them in suspension until they are rinsed away. It makes your laundry washing chore easier, healthier, more economical, and much kinder to our planet.

ORDER TODAY & PLEASE SHARE OUR FUNDRAISING LINK: 30% OFF BACK TO SCHOOL SALE UNTIL SEPTEMBER 05, 2021: https://fundraising.tru.earth/JudoAlberta 

Judo Alberta is encouraging its membership to order from TRU EARTH and to share our fundraising link to friends, family, employees, and colleagues.

Judogi Cleaning & Covid-19 Reality

It is very important that judoka are washing their judo uniforms and training clothes following each training. TRU EARTH is a great laundry detergent that is fantastic for cleaning judogis and is environmentally friendly because we are not using the big plastic bottles.

TRU EARTH laundry strips are perfect for athletes that will be traveling to competitions and training camps. No need to purchase laundry detergent on the road or have a bag of detergent or a container of liquid detergent. The TRU EARTH strips will simply fit into your baggage taking almost no room without having to worry about a mess.
