Covid track and trace

The BJA have published an update on Covid 19 and the government Track and Trace system.

Venues can now publish a QR code for club members to check-in, which saves having to keep track of personal info by the venue for the purposes of Track and Trace.

BJA Track and Trace update

We represent the Yorkshire & Humberside region of The British Judo Association and our aim is to provide the opportunity and encouragement to people within Yorkshire & Humberside to participate and reach their potential in Judo.

We provide equally for those who want to partake recreationally as those that want to compete to the highest level.

There is provision for competitions, Gradings and organised Judo sessions where club members throughout the Area can take part, with the added experience for some team members to compete abroad, gaining further experience.

Provision is made for those who would like to become coaches, referees or competition official. The latter being an opportunity for parents of children involved. All coaches, referees, competition officials are properly qualified through British Judo's nationally recognised qualification.

Although many members, both female and male, from this Area have achieved National and even Olympic level status, we try to provide a sport that not only brings participants a specific sports skill but also a disciplined mind and body to take forward into the community for the rest of their lives.

Good communication in the Yorkshire & Humberside area is essential and this Website is promoting that. 

If you haven't tried Judo, I hope you will and find it rewarding.
