Information and documents on the processes and organisation of British Judo’s coaching system can be found on this page.
A BJA club should have BJA Club Insurance and the requirements needed to meet all insurance. There should be at least one UKCC Level 2 qualified coach within your club and each coach thereafter should have a valid:
- Safeguarding and protecting children certificate
- First Aid certificate
- Attend 3 revalidation modules within the last coaching cycle
*Failure to have any of the above means your coach is not BJA licensed and this will invalidate your club’s insurance.
