Judo Federation Australia is going through a significant transition phase and has been rated as underperforming. It recently employed its first CEO, undertook a governance review, had a significant turnover of board directors and reviewed its high performance program in the wake of recent benchmark event results.

Before this process, judo was experiencing significant governance and leadership issues that heavily impacted the high performance program. The reforms better position the sport to review its subsequent staff structure, specifically around high performance. In particular, reviewing and solidifying the high performance coaching structure and enhancing the daily training environment of key athletes remain critical to any future high performance success in the sport.


In 2014 the Judo Federation Australia went through some major transitions as a sport, with significant change in board personnel and the creation of a new CEO position. An ASC-led governance review has now been completed and has provided the Judo Federation Australia with a pathway to improved corporate governance, organisational stability and an improved culture to drive performance. The implementation of the recommendations made in the governance review and increased diversification of the Judo Federation Australia board are critical priorities for the sport’s sustainable success.
