Veteran Athlete Resources
Veteran competition is open to athletes age 30 and older (age determined by Year of Birth) with tournaments open to athletes at the local, national and international level, culminating in the Veteran World Championships. Domestic competition opportunities include veteran events at the USA Judo Senior National Championships and President's Cup as well as the U.S. Veterans Open.
Goals of the Committee: The short term goal of the Veterans Committee is to build a strong and trusting relationship between USA Judo and veteran competitors in the United States. Also, to develop a line of communication with all veteran athletes to inform them of completion opportunities, rule changes, developmental opportunities (coaching, refereeing, promotion) and networking opportunities.
Long term, we plan to elicit backing from sponsorship to help support veterans athletes attending international events.
