“ACTIVE KIDS” VOUCHERS

  • Lately there has been some confusion over the timing of usage of these vouchers for either club training fees or Judo NSW annual membership fees. Your voucher information needs to be given to Budokan Judo Club when paying for club fees or to Judo NSW (on-line) when paying for their annual membership fees. Your fees will be discounted by $100 for each of the two available vouchers used per child. The voucher cannot be used for Judogis, merchandise, or travel and can only be used during the calendar year it was issued. Budokan will not process the vouchers as part-payment or credit for future fees.

OTHER GRANTS AND RECOGNITION

  • The club spends quite a bit of time applying for different grants, either local, State or Federal Government-based, or even privately sponsored grants like Telstra. We also apply for relevant awards either within or outside the Judo community. Over the years, we have had a pretty good hit rate but we need your assistance to keep identifying any opportunities for grants or awards for recognition of achievement. Recently new Committee member Scott Young submitted two applications under the 2019 Local Sport Grant program: the first for equipment and merchandise, and the second to support a new training fee management system, and an iPad and a square reader for credit card payments.  Thanks to Scott for taking up the challenge.
