British Judo Announces Fifth “Return To Judo” Webinar

British Judo are pleased to announce details of a fifth webinar designed to cover all aspects of the sport returning safely after the Covid-19 outbreak.

Starting last month our Sports Development team, led by Colin McIver and Joyce Heron, hosted our first three webinars in a series designed and targeted specifically for our membership.

The webinars will detail guidelines and expectations of all areas of our membership as we receive further guidance from the Government. Each week will focus on a specific area of the Association with further sessions planned to cover Technical Officials, Referees, Talent, Coaching and Gradings with dates to be confirmed shortly.

There will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions throughout the sessions and we would like as many members to access these opportunities.

Places will be available on a first come, first served basis with only 100 places available for each webinar so please only sign up if you fulfil the criteria for each session.

Don’t worry if you cannot make any of the sessions as we will be able to email a link to the recordings of the webinars to watch in your own time.
