Welcome to the British Judo Governance Review Microsite!

In May 2016, the UK Government published a Charter for Sports Governance in the UK which set out some key governance principles that they expect all sports in the UK to follow.

As a result of this, the British Judo Association (BJA) recognised the need to review its governance of the sport more generally than we explained in our recently published Strategic Plan for 2017-2021. A further trigger for this action was also as a result of the circumstance surrounding the unfortunate withdrawal of the 2015 European Judo Championships in February 2015 and the governance issues arising from the review.

In order to agree the changes as proposed by independent governance consultant Jonathan Hall, we are now entering a period of consultation with all our members. To provide as many opportunities to engage and interact with our members as possible we have built the new microsite, the interactive form, the new blog and will be hosting 13 regional roadshow meetings throughout February and March.

Please do take the time to download the documents, read the recommendations and if you have any questions please send us a question using the form below. We hope to see as many people as possible at one of the upcoming meetings and we look forward to sharing updates to the project on the new blog.

The recommendations stated by Jonathan Hall will allow us to become “Code Compliant” with UK Sport after they set out key principles that they expect all sports in the UK to follow. You can read the full report from UK Sports by clicking here
