    Chief Referee: Ross Kostron
    Judo Sask is asking that all clubs with athletes competing supply a minimum of one referee for the tournament day. The Ne-waza and Tachi-waza (U10/U12) divisions are a great opportunity for our older athletes to referee, as well as our novice referees. Minimum dress code is recommended for novice referees: judogi or grey pants, white shirt and black socks.
