Judo Training and Membership Fees

2019 Annual JFA(NSW) and Club Membership and Fees

From the 1st January 2019, the following forms must be completed before new members participate in any session at Budokan Judo Club: (1) “Budokan Club Membership Form” and (2) “Risk Warning and Waiver Form”

To be able to participate in Judo training at Budokan Judo Club, some administration is required with two separate organisations: (1) Budokan Judo Club and (2) Judo NSW. In both cases a no obligation one-month trial option is available. Alternatively, new members may wish to become financial with Judo NSW immediately and also pay Budokan training fees immediately or prior to expiry of the month trial period. The following explains the options.

Section 1.     For the first month of training

  1. Judo NSW Trial Membership. After participating in the first Judo session at Budokan Judo Club, unless you want to pay your Judo NSW registration up-front (see Section 2 below), new members must obtain a “Trial Membership” from the NSW governing Judo body, “Judo NSW”. This is done on-line and by doing so, Judo NSW provides 4 weeks of no-obligation trial membership for new members which includes insurance coverage. New members can register their trial membership with Judo NSW as follows:

Junior (Under 16 years) and Senior (16 years and over) Membership

  • Go to the Judo NSW website at http://www.judonsw.com.au/ and select “Join a Club”.
  • Select “Budokan” as the club, click “Next”.
  • Select “Senior – Trial Membership” or “Junior – Trial Membership” as applicable. “Senior – Trial Membership” is for those who are aged 16 years or over on the day they register, otherwise use Junior. Click “Next”.
  • Check the boxes at the bottom of the Member Acknowledgement and Declaration and type in Guardian’s name in the case of “Junior – Trial Membership”. Click “Next” and complete all the personal details as indicated.
  • Click “Next”. Please ensure you click “Submit Application”. There is no payment required and you should receive a confirmation email from Judo NSW to your nominated email address.  Please keep your Username and Password which are generated by the system. At this time you can edit and personalise these fields. This process is important and will allow you to register for 12 months after the trial period ends.
  • In two to three weeks from the date that you register your trial membership, Judo NSW will automatically send you an email stating that your one month trial period will end soon and that your registration fees will be due. Please do this when you receive the email so that you don’t forget. See Section 2 regarding how to log in to the Judo NSW payment system.  
  • Once you renew your membership with Judo NSW and pay your registration fee, the Judo NSW office will post a white Judo NSW membership card to Rob Katz, who is the President of Budokan Judo Club, and it will be available for collection at the club.
  • The date of your annual membership with Judo NSW will be from the commencement of your trial period. Effectively, Judo NSW provides a no-obligation one month trial period which is paid for when you join. If you choose not to continue training after the one month trial, there is no cost.

Dinos Classes.

The Judo NSW trial membership is not available for the “Mini-Kids Membership” used for the Dino classes. After the first session, online registration is due with Judo NSW as follows:

  • Go to the Judo NSW website at the following link: http://www.judonsw.com.au/ and select “Join a Club”.
  • Select “Budokan” as the club; click “Next”.
  • Select “Mini-Kids Membership”; click “Next”.
  • Check the boxes at the bottom of Member Acknowledgement, Declaration and type in Guardian’s name. Click “Next” and complete all the personal details as indicated.
  • Click “Next”. Click “Submit Application and Pay Online”. Cost is $50 for 12 months
  1. Budokan Judo Club Membership.  Budokan Judo Club also offers a no obligation one month trial period before a commitment must be made regarding training fees. Options for training fees are provided later in this document. Should a new member continue to train after the one-month trial period, the club training fees become due and will be back-dated to the first session. The “Budokan Club Membership Form” and the “Risk Warning and Waiver Form” must be completed to trigger the first month’s trial period. If new members wish to pay training fees up-front, this is also possible in which case refer to Section 2 below. If new members leave after the one month trial period, there is no cost.

Section 2.     After the One-Month Trial Membership Period

The annual membership fee to Judo NSW and Budokan Judo Club training fees are both required to be paid at the time the respective one-month trial memberships expire. Both fees are retrospective covering the one-month trial period and both payments have a separate process as follows:

  1. Judo NSW Membership.
  • Use the link provided in the email from Judo NSW which will be sent to you before the expiry of the one month trial membership period, or go to the Judo NSW website at the following link: http://www.judonsw.com.au/ and select the “Renew” tab using the username and password provided with the Trial Membership or which you nominated. If you misplace your username and password, you will need to contact Rob Katz for assistance.
  • Select “Budokan” as the club, “New Individual member - Senior” or “New Individual Member - Junior” as applicable.
  • Note that Judo NSW is a “Provider” under the NSW Government Active Kids Program which offers $100 for school-enrolled children aged 4.5 to 18 years. If you wish to use this subsidy, simply apply for a voucher on line from MyServiceNSW and select the “Junior Membership (NSW active Kids Voucher System)” or “Senior Membership (NSW active Kids Voucher System)” from the membership options available.
  • Read and tick the “Member Acknowledgement” section and insert “Guardian Approval name” in the case of Junior membership.
  • Complete the remaining details and make the required payment per the Judo NSW membership schedule below. Membership is 12 months from first date of registration. Judo NSW will automatically send you an email shortly before the expiry of your 12 month membership. Please renew your membership when you receive this email.
  • Note that Judo NSW is a Provider under the NSW Government Active Kids Program which offers $100 for school-enrolled children aged 4.5 to 18 years. You can use this voucher for payment of either the annual membership fee Judo NSW or for Budokan training fees.

  1. Budokan Judo Club Training Fees.
  • Budokan Judo Club Training Fees cover 3 month, 6 month, or 12 month periods. Significant discounts are available if payment is made for longer training periods as well as for multiple family memberships. Refer to the schedule below.
  • Note that Budokan Judo Club is a Provider under the NSW Government Active Kids Program which offers $100 for school-enrolled children aged 4.5 to 18 years. For use of the Active Kids Voucher against Budokan training fees, simply apply for a voucher apply online from MyServiceNSW and forward your Voucher details to budokan.treasurer@outlook.com and katzfamily@iinet.net.au
  • The Budokan training fee structure is available per the schedule below, on the club notice board, as handouts at the club, and on our website at http://www.budokan-judo-club.com/judo-training-fees.html.
  • Payment renewals will be linked to one of four dates each year: 1st January, 1st April, 1st July or 1st October. The first payment will be pro-rated to align with one of these dates, as nominated by the new member. Example: If a Junior commences on 14th February 2019 and after a 1 month trial wants to pay for 6 months, the closest date is 1st July. The period between 14th February and 1st July is 19 4/7 weeks. The closest period to this is 6 months or 26 weeks. The member is therefore charged $230 (the 6 month Junior fee) multiplied by 19 4/7 divided by 26 = $173.13 to 1st July, which is about 75% of the 6 month fee. Of course the member can elect to pay for 12 months in which case a similar pro-rata calculation would apply.

BUDOKAN JUDO CLUB TRAINING FEES

Please note the savings possible by paying for a longer term and for families with more than one club member. Please consider these options remembering that payment for all family members must be made at the beginning of the training period and align to the same period.

Note to Existing Club Members on the 2019 Fee Increase

Up to 2019, Budokan applied an annual club membership fee of $30 to all members except Dinos. These fees were in addition to training fees and discounts were offerred for multiple family members. More often than not, these fees didn’t align with the anniversary of training fees and this was difficult to administer.

From 2019 these membership fees have been absorbed into the new training fee structure.

As the club has not had a fee increase in 3 years, all fees have been increased in the order of 20%.  However, if you take the annual membership fees as part of the 2018 training fees, a comparison with the new fees for 3, 6 or 12 months shows that for single memberships (Senior, Junior, Mons or Dinos), the increase ranges from only 11% to 19%

We have retained similar percentage discounts to the previous fee schedule for longer-term training fee payments. Percentage discounts from 3 to 6 months and from 6 to 12 months remain as they have been, between 19% and 22%

Increases for multiple family memberships for the scenarios listed above range from 10 to 18%. Discounts for multiple family members will apply to a maximum number of family members of 4. This applies to direct family members. Therefore families with five or more members will be charged for only the four family members with the highest fees. The fifth family member will not be charges any fees.

We have retained similar percentage discounts to the previous fee schedule for multiple family members. Percentage discounts for multiple family member combinations are all in the order of 20% when compared against “Single Member” fees.
