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

Starting September 20th 2021, ALL Judo Alberta sanctioned events will enforce the following restrictions in order for members ages 12 and over (coaches, athletes, staff, parents, volunteers) to attend/participate:

    • 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.

Congratulations Judo Alberta Grading Candidates

Congratulations Judo Alberta Grading Candidates

On July 17th, Judo Alberta hosted the first Competitive Stream Dan Grading at the Lethbridge Judo Club.  Gord Okamura and Garry Yamashita conducted the Nage-no-kata and Waza clinics, while Kelly Palmer and Wesley Enns led the Katame-no-kata and Kime-no-kata clinics.  During the Waza clinic, all candidates were asked to demonstrate and give a brief explanation of how they execute their favourite techniques (both tachi-waza and ne-waza) and then everyone had the opportunity to practice the movements.  A total of 29 participants took part in the kata clinics, including the Competitive Stream candidates.
