On behalf of Judo Alberta the Provincial Coaching Committee, we would like to congratulate these athletes for successfully being selected to the team! See the announcement here . For those athletes that have been selected, as well as for their club coaches, the Coaching Committee will still require the following information:
1) Coaches can you please confirm that the weight division is correct for each athlete as it appears that some athletes have moved weight divisions since their application was first submitted. This is necessary for the official registration with Judo Canada.
2) Any athlete who previously completed a waiver and medical forms will have to do so again, as Judo Canada has since updated the forms for this event. The correct waiver form can be found here and the medical form can be found here. These forms must be submitted to Garry Yamashita no later than June 1, 2013.
Any athletes wishing to appeal the Team Selection can do so in accordance with the Judo Alberta Selection policy found here.
