Club Coach Discretionary Exam Points
Wednesday, 13 December 2017 08:15

please find attached the form to be completed to award discretionary exam points to your hard working club coaches who are elligible for coaching examination points.

Note that the points allocation has changed from previous years (as communicated earlier in the year) which will simplify the process.

Please complete and return to the address shown on the form asap, but no later than end of Term 1 2018.

NB: We have made changes to the database that will now automatically award points upon completion of Coaching qualifications, and also automatically award Active Coach points for all those elligible who are listed on the website as requested by clubs, so you no longer need to advise these to the Points Registrar.

We are currently working on changes that will enable Club Administrators to manage the website club coach listings (so that you can add or delete elligible club coaches), and also automating the attached form so that you will be able to award discretionary points on-line (no more forms!!)

These changes will be advised when available.

Internation Refereeing Success
Monday, 11 December 2017 08:24

Diane Limbrey (MET WB) completed the requirements in passing her International A referee licence at the Asian Open in Hong Kong last weekend.
To achieve this she has spent the last few years travelling the world to improve her refereeing, and to prepare for the examination.
Diane is the third NewZealand women to achieve this level, and the first in 30 years. She is the 13th NZ referee to obtain this IJF A level.

In addition, Neisha Brooking (TAU WB) and Steven Gray (MAI WB) passed their OJUB referee licence at the OJU Open held recently in Vanuatu.
At the South Pacific Mini-Games held in Vanuatu, Dave Browne (JNH AK) was Referee Commissioner, and Bryce Butterfield (MAI CA) refereed.

Congratulations to these and all our referees representing and flying the NZ flag at international level.

CD Camp
Wednesday, 25 October 2017 07:39

Central Districts Area Judo held their annual camp in Kaiteriteri on 11-13 October 2017, attended by 18 young Judoka from Blenheim, Nelson, Motueka and Granity clubs.

Fundamental judo skills were the main focus at this fully residential camp. There was an introduction to the Koshi waza set of the Nage no kata and as this was a camp for youngsters fun was a key ingredient.

Visits to the nearby beach and a Waka Ama lesson were very popular. The quiz night (including some judo questions) and film night were relaxing and complimented all the hard training and learning done during the day.

Big thanks to coaches Stefan Heinrich and Shayne Jacks, and a massive thanks to all parents, helpers and sponsors that played a part in making it happen.
