This year Quebec Open and Ontario Open will be back to back in November 2014. Between these two tournaments there is a national training camp at the NTC in Montreal. Both of these tournaments are regional point’s tournaments and will be a qualifier for the new Elite 8 competition in January which is the Judo Canada selection tournament for Europe in March 2015.
Judo Alberta coaching staff recommend both tournaments to U18 and U21 athletes that wish to compete at an international level this year. Also we recommend athletes have competed at nationals prior to competing at either of these tournaments.
