Judo Alberta Great Mrs. Florence Senda Passes Away

It is with great sadness and a sense of immense loss that the family of Florence Senda announces her passing on August 22, 2019 at the age of 93 years. She was born on April 14, 1926.

Florence is survived by her Children; Ron (Collette Oseen) Senda, Greg (Jane) Senda and Dawna (Giuliano) Coslovi, her Grandchildren; Deanna (John) Wolsey, Kathryn (Gray) Oseen-Senda, Mika Senda, Teio Senda and Dean Coslovi, and two Great Grandchildren; Shawny Senda and Theo Rybka-Senda. She is also survived by her siblings; Misae Masuda (sister) and Arthur (Pat) Hironaka (brother).

Florence was predeceased by her husband Yosh Senda and her daughter Mae.

Florence was a local girl born and raised in Raymond, Alberta. She married Yosh Senda in 1947 and together they raised their family in Lethbridge. Mom had strong roots in Southern Alberta and believed in actively giving back to the community by volunteering her time for various community organizations. She will be especially remembered for her many years at the Lethbridge Judo Club and was still practicing right up until her passing. She led a quietly independent life, spending the last 3 years living in the community at Garden View Lodge with her dog Roo.

People wishing to pay their respects can meet the Family on Thursday, August 29, 2019 from 7:00 – 8:00 p.m. at the Buddhist Temple of Southern Alberta, 470 – 40th Street South, Lethbridge.

Funeral Services will be held on Friday, August 30, 2019 at 10:00 a.m. at the Buddhist Temple of Southern Alberta with Ikuta Sensei officiating.

In lieu of flowers and koden, donations may be made to the “Dr. Yoshio & Florence Senda Scholarship Fund” at the University of Lethbridge, 4401 – University Drive W, Lethbridge, AB T1K 3M4.

2019-2020 Membership Registration Information

Judo Alberta Membership,

IMPORTANT: All clubs need to be registered before October 15 along with a minimum of 10 members to not be charged $100 club fee by JC. Please use this registration link https://www.trackie.com/JudoAB/

Judo Canada registration/accident insurance expires August 31.  Therefore, it is imperative that on-line registrations and payment reach Judo Alberta on or before September 30, 2019.  Judo Alberta and Judo Canada registration fees are non-refundable once submitted on Trackie.

NOTE:  JUDO CANADA HAS IMPLEMENTED A CLUB FEE OF $100 TO THOSE CLUBS WHO DO NOT HAVE 10 OR MORE MEMBERS REGISTERED BEFORE OCTOBER 15, 2019.

JUDO ALBERTA/JUDO CANADA FEE SCHEDULE

  • Online registration AND payment must both be received before members are properly registered and in good standing with Judo Alberta and Judo Canada. If both are not received, registrations are not valid which could disallow athletes participating in provincials, nationals, internationally, training camps or other related events.  Insurance coverage is also not in place for those members.
  • If a club or its members are not registered and wish to participate in a tournament/event, both the online registration and payment must be submitted a minimum of 14 days prior to that tournament/ event so Judo Canada membership cards can be generated.

CLUB INFORMATION – To be completed and submitted to the Registrar (registrar@judoalberta.com) and Judo Alberta (judo@judoalberta.com) so Club information is up to date.  All Judo Alberta clubs are required to have their members sign a liability waiver.  For the safety of each club, be sure to have current members sign a waiver and ensure any new members thereafter also sign a waiver.  If you have any questions or need assistance creating a waiver, please contact the Judo Alberta office.

MEMBER INFORMATION – Each member can complete this form to assist the Club in completing Judo Canada’s online registration.  DO NOT send this form to the Registrar or Judo Alberta offices; it is strictly for club use. 

Encourage members who may be FNMI (First Nations, Metis, Inuit) or have a disability to indicate this on their form or on-line registration.  This information can assist in funding and programs.

PIPEDA & CONFIDENTIALITY AGREEMENT – Each club member should complete this document.  The original is kept by the Club with access by Judo Alberta should the need arise.  A PIPEDA Agreement for members does not need to be completed each year; just once for as long as they are a member.  Judo Alberta only needs to be provided with a copy of the Exclusion List.

The Confidentiality Agreement needs to be completed by all club members who have access to personal information within the club structure. This would include the coaches and registrar, as well as any board members who have access to private contact or medical information. Time should be taken by the registrar and/or head coach to reinforce the importance of maintaining the privacy of all athletes, volunteers and coaches.

PROMOTIONS— Promotion form is to be filled out completely including qualified Examiner/Sponsor indicated.  Both this form and payment need to be received before Promotions will be registered and processed.  All Promotions must be registered with Judo Alberta; unregistered promotions could cause delays or fines (ie.  Shodan grading, tournament registrations, Nationals, Alberta Winter Games, Canada Winter Games, etc.).

Thanks,

Helen Bienert
