Coach Dress Code and Credentials for All USA Judo National Events

    Coaches must be current USA Judo Certified Coaches to receive coaching credentials at all USA Judo sanctioned events, including local, regional and national tournaments.

    In addition, all coaches must adhere to the following dress code during events. Failure to adhere will be grounds for removal of coaching credentials for the event:

    Coaches may wear their club or USA Judo warm-up suit with pants reaching down to their shoes which need to be closed-toe (sandals and flip flops are NOT permitted). Coaches may wear a short or long-sleeved t-shirt as long as it has a judo club logo or USA Judo logo on it. Otherwise a collared shirt is required. Khaki pants are preferred, but dress jeans (no holes or markings) are also allowed. Please consider that your appearance represents you, your family, your dojo, your athletes, your athletes’ families, our sport and USA Judo. All USA Judo National events will be streamed and people from around the world will be tuning in, so please look as professional as possible.
