was decided to request from all club owners/coaches to submit there profile along with their club information. VZ will put all the information provided on AASF website.
Was decided to ask every sambo club to prepare at least two referees for an official state certification (provided by AASF state representatives) so they could start servicing tournaments of a local level (“Club Open”). Then candidates could qualify for a regional level referee that can be achieved by completing regional level seminar and successfully passing regional level certification.
Was decided to require every club associated with AASF to provide their own insurance policy that could be claimed as a primary club’s insurance. By affiliating with AASF (paying annual club membership), club will receive additional insurance (provided by AASF) that could be claimed as a secondary insurance. Also, clubs are required to acquire additional insurance for their club’s tournament. While AASF will be held responsible for acquiring additional insurance required for the regional level tournaments.
FS responsible for acquiring AASF insurance for the next year
