JudoScotland Board Member (Co-option)

Posted: 10/02/2017

Following the recent departure of a JudoScotland Board member, we are keen to invite applications from individuals willing to be co-opted onto the JudoScotland Board through to the 2017 Annual General meeting (AGM) in the first instance. The JudoScotland AGM will take place on Saturday 2nd September 2017. 


As the sportscotland-recognised national governing body for the Olympic sport of Judo, JudoScotland (JS) represents our members, clubs, individual disciplines and hundreds of qualified, enthusiastic and committed volunteers delivering judo across Scotland.

We believe that the Olympic sport of Judo has the potential to have a major impact on the lives of the Scottish population and in particular on our younger citizens. Our sport has an inherent ability to engender respect for others, a sense of fair-play, develops a personal confidence and self-discipline within its participants, along with the obvious potential for an improvement in physical fitness.
