COV Awards

From local clubs to international events, Judo-in-Scotland could not function without the tireless efforts of our volunteer workforce, technical officials and coaches. We launched the Coaching and Volunteering Awards to recognise the fantastic and tireless work of the many individuals whose efforts let us enjoy our sport.

The JudoScotland Coaching, Officiating and Volunteer Awards is our way of saying thank you for all your hard work.
