Judo Nova Scotia wants to pass along an update that was released by the Province regarding easing of Public Health restrictions. As of March 20th, some restrictions have been lifted; this is good news for Judo. It has been a lot of work by the association and clubs to alter and manage schedules on the fly; we truly appreciate it.
Due to the easing of restrictions, the Judo Nova Scotia Board of Directors voted to approve club collaboration within our province, meaning Judo NS will allow clubs to collaborate with a maximum of 60 Judoka of Matt capacity. The size of the practice surface required for each participant is estimated to be a minimum of 3 square meters. Therefore, a dojo with 60 meters square of tatami surface offers as safe participation area for approximately 20 participants practicing free movement drills at the same time.
Although the restrictions have been eased, this does not mean that everything will go back to normal immediately. A lot of difficult decisions have been made already; some of these decisions may be re-assessed. We urge patience and understanding. Any changes or updates from the Nova Scotia Health Association will be re-assessed at any given time.
In the meantime, we ask you to continue to follow the protocols of the JNS Return to Play Plan and Public Health. Let’s keep working together to keep our Judoka on the mat and to finish the season strong!
