Judo Canada board of directors has decided to abolish the position of athlete representative and replace it with an athletes committee.
The Athletes’ Committee is set to consist of three members, with one taking on the position of chair. Candidates must be national team members or carded Judo Canada members within five years of the date of their election.
One athlete must not be based at the national training center, and only one retired athlete can sit on the Committee at a time. The election is scheduled to take place in early November, with interested athletes encouraged to submit their names by November 1.
