2018-19 Registration Forms Now Available

The 2018-19 Season is just around the corner! Information and registration forms  are now available:

Club Registration Form
Member Registration Form
Promotion Registration Form
PIPEDA Agreement Form

NOTE:  Judo Canada registration/accident insurance expires August 31.  Therefore, it is imperative that registrations and payment reach Judo Alberta’s Registrar on or before September 30, 2018.  All registrations are non-refundable once sent to the Registrar.  All Registrations and Promotions payments are sent to Helen Bienert at 53529 Range Road 224, Ardrossan, AB  T8E 2L8.  DO NOT send them to Judo Alberta’s office.

  • NEW online club registration will be coordinated with Judo Canada this year. ONLY club registrations are being accepted; NO INDIVIDUALS.
  • 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 received a minimum of 14 days prior to that tournament/ event so Judo Canada issued membership cards can be generated. Registrations will not be processed at a tournament/event site.

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.  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.).
