JFA Christmas Message


I am pleased to report that the new Board has hit the ground running and is working very hard and very cohesively in the best interests of Judo. Thanks are due to our Secretary, Shane Alvisio, our Treasurer, Nick Papadimitropoulos, and to our newest members, Angela Deacon and John Bennett.

I would also like to acknowledge our staff for all of their work during 2014.

Now that the JFA has a Chief Executive Officer in Paula Ward to run the organisation on a day to day basis we are in the process of building a strong team and have great hopes for the future.

I would also like to thank all of our state members for all of your hard work week in and week out to run the sport at the grass roots level. Naturally this couldn't happen without the army of volunteers at club, state and national level that are the life blood of our great sport.

To our elite athletes I hope that you have an enjoyable holiday period and that you can approach the new year with renewed energy and passion for our sport.

To all members and supporters I wish you all a Happy and Safe Christmas.

Neville Sharpe
