The NWT Judo Association provides in school and out of school judo programming throughout Fort Providence in partnership with the DDEC (Dehcho Divisional Education Council) with the goal of introducing judo to indigenous students, athletes and practitioners of all ages and guiding them in judo, whether that be in recreational programs or developing them towards high performance sport.
This program awaits a full time coach directly located out of Fort Providence. In the meantime, the full time coach located in Fort Simpson, Joshua Hagen, will visit regularly to offer judo in the community.
