The Atlantic Canadian Judo Championships has a new name – The Atlantic Open Judo Championships
The name change is meant to reflect the nature of the event as it has moved from being an event for just Atlantic Canadian Judokas
Great Event Only Getting Better
In 2016 the Atlantics were held in Summerside PEI for the first time. Competitors came from beyond the 4 Atlantic Provinces, including competitors who came from Brazil. This year we are hoping to continue the trend as we are officially opening up the Atlantic Open to a wider audience.
New Permanent Location
At a meeting of provincial representatives (representing Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and PEI) at this year’s Judo Canada AGM it was decided each of the 3 Maritime Provinces would have their provincials and one “anchor” event each year that would be free from scheduling conflicts of the other provinces and that we be mutually promoted. At time it was decided that PEI would be the new permanent host of the Atlantics.
New Brunswick Hosts the Fall Classic Every Year in October and Nova Scotia Hosts the N.U.M.A. Cup each spring.
The 2017 Atlantic Open will be held at Credit Union Place from March 17th to 19th.
