YES! All Jiu Jitsu and Sport Jiu Jitsu tournaments in Ontario must be sanctioned by the OJA and therefore a valid membership is mandatory.
The membership is valid for the calendar year. For example, if you buy it from January 2020 to October 2020, the membership will be valid until December 2020. Memberships bought after October 1st, will be valid until December 31st on the subsequent year.
For now YES! But we do encourage all clubs to be members and take advantage of what we offer. Have them contact us for more info on the matter.
No, the OJA membership is NON-REFUNDABLE.
