Through hard work and refereeing at out of state Judo tournaments, several of our Alaska Referees have been promoted to their next level.
David Cheverie and Bruce Neeno have advance to the N3 Level which allows both to referee at the Senior Nationals. Mark Langberg has advanced to the N2 level and this allows Mark to referee at higher caliber Junior national level events.
The Referee Committee wishs to thank Alaska Judo inc. for their support of our referee program. The support of AJI and the hard work of the individual referees is paying off. It has been a long time since Alaska Referees have been at a Level which allows them to referee at such high level events. The hard work of AJI, the Referee Committee and all Alaska Referees really does improve our local competitions for all the competitors.
Congats to the Referees and we look forward to more in the future.”Read-more...”
Here is a list of National Level Referee going to the Junior National this year in Hawaii:
This is very large number of referees going to the Nationals from Alaska. I am sure we will be one of the most represented States. This just show how dedicated the Alaska Judo Referees team is to honing their craft to provide the best possible refereeing for the competitors here in Alaska.
To the right is a picture of the refereeing team at the Nationals in Hawaii. As you can see we are all in Hawaiian shirts. A very rare sight indeed!! See if you can pick out the Five Alaska Referees in the picture to the Right!
You can see Bruce and Steve in action in the photo to the right.
We all gained a lot of experience refereeing at this National level event. The first day ended around 9:30 pm, The second day finished up around 6:00pm and we had a short day on Sunday which ended around 1:30pm.
As you can see from the photo we were provided Hawaian shirts to referee in.
After the competition was over we had a great dinner and some very good refreshments to end the evening.
A big thanks to Alaska Judo inc. for supporting its referees to attend this National level event. The knowledge gained here will be spread to all the Alaksa referees to help support and grow our referee program.
Also a huge thank you to Mark Langberg and the 50th State Judo Association as together they were able to get Alaska Judo one of the Referee Judo Care System used at this event.”Read-more...”
