There will be a portion at the end of the conference to guide coaches through the process of registering online and starting your certification.   The theme of this conference is “Communicating with the Athlete and Athlete Stress” and we will discuss ways we can address stressful scenarios, support stressed athletes, and implement preventative measures to provide a healthier judo experience.   Join us to network, learn, and continue or start your journey as a United States Judo Federation certified coach!   ZOOM LINKS:   Topic: USJF Coach Conference Time: Jun 6, 2021 4:00 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada) Join Zoom Meeting… Meeting ID: 843 7405 9058 Passcode: USJF One tap mobile +12532158782,,84374059058#,,,,*766926# US (Tacoma) +13462487799,,84374059058#,,,,*766926# US (Houston) Dial by your location +1 253 215 8782 US (Tacoma)[...]
