The Fernie Judo Club is a non-profit sports club for both youngsters and adults that celebrated its 25th year in Fernie this past season. The club is run by volunteer instructors and coaches who are sanctioned by Judo B.C. and Judo Canada and who are actively involved in the N.C.C.P. program (national coaching certification program). Both instructors and senior students are encouraged  and sponsored to be involved in the N.C.C.P. program. The club looks forward to starting their next quarter century of sport and physical fitness in Fernie this coming September
