New Sponsorship with Sherwood Ford

January
2018

Judo Canada is proud to announce a new sponsorship program with Sherwood Ford (AB) for the creation of “The Giant” Canadian Circuit Ranking 2018. “This program will allow us to promote the Canadian Circuit events, increase the participation of our best Canadian athletes of all ages and reward top national performers with bursaries,” said Nicolas Gill. “We’re always looking at opportunities to stimulate growth of our national circuit and help our best young athletes pursue their dream.”

 

How does it work?

The top male and female performer will each receive a $2,500 bursary. In case of a tie, the bursary will be split evenly between the athletes. For this edition, points will be counted from the Elite Nationals 2018 to the Canada Cup 2018. The points cumulated for this program will have no impact on the carding and selection of national teams.

75 bonus points will be awarded to an athlete who has competed in all 6 events included in the tour and if he/she wins 8 medals during the season.

A minimum of 2 wins is required to get the full points in an event. 1 win only allows 50% of the points. Point cumulated in any weight class will count, making it possible to change weight classes during the tour. However, the weight classes are limited to the IJF Senior weight classes. There are no limits of events in which an athlete can compete to cumulate points.

Mark Hicks, owner and operator of Sherwood Ford, is very excited to be a part of this program. “I’ve been involved with judo since I was a young child, and continue to have a high interest in the success and growth of our sport. I look forward to following the success of your athletes in the Giant Canadian Circuit Ranking Sponsorship.”
