Judo Alberta Girls Sleepover Camp – March 25 & 26

Hi Everyone,

We are bringing back the Judo Alberta Girls’ Sleepover Camp this year! Special Thanks to Tolide Judo Kwai for hosting our sleepover March 25 and 26.

This year our VIP sensei is Fatira Merah, 7 dan, Alberta’s first female High Performance Coach. She developed a strong team 10 years ago and we have been enjoying her legacy ever since. 

Fatira is currently a coach at Anjou Judo Club in Montreal where she also teaches self defence courses for women. As such, part of our judo camp this year will be self-defence training. Please encourage your female membership to come to Fort Saskatchewan for technique, friendship, leadership, and some new skills. Chaperones (18+) are free.
