This initiative provides a pathway for young Judoka to become a referee and brings Judo in line with other popular sports such as Netball.
As at the 1st of January 2021, Judoka who turn 13 in 2021 must referee at least 2 competitions in that year or won’t be eligible to compete in Judo NSW competitions.
The referees’ commission will maintain records of referee and training activities by 13 y.o. and remit them every 6 months to Judo NSW for checking. Judoka can referee at club level or greater competitions.
