1. 2006 Year at a Glance

The 2006 CKA/CASK year is shaping up to be an exciting year with various programs and events being rolled out. Certification courses; training programs; competitions and club services are being planned across the country. The provincial CKA/CASK network continues to grow providing more opportunities for networking and inter-provincial events.

Please refer to the calendar page on the CKA/CASK website ( www.kickboxingcanada.org) for more information on upcoming items. The calendar is updated regularly as events are confirmed. For more detailed information on any listed event, please contact the CKA/CASK office via email.

2. Certification Courses

A few courses have been added to the 2006 Calendar. These have been organized through specific member Clubs: Progressive Martial Arts - Thunder Bay (January 21-22), Impact Zone - Kingston (February 18-19), and TAZ Kickboxing (March 25-Coaching Course only). If your Club wishes to host a course (Coaching and/or Officials) please contact the office for more details.

On Saturday May 21st the first Level II Officials Course will be held. This course will be open to people who have completed their Level I Officials Course. Level II Officials will be certified to be Referee's at CASK sanctioned events. As part of the new CASK Official Certification Program (OCP) - Level I certifies judges at CASK events; Level II certifies referees; and Level III certifies Chief Officials. Please note: CASK Level I certified officials have refereed in the past at international events, however the new certification requires the Level II course for referee status at events within Canada. There will be no grand-fathering in at any level of the OCP.

Also - in either July or August, CKA/CASK will be hosting the first Train-the-Trainers courses for both streams of courses (Coaching and Officiating). Persons have their Level I and Level II certificates will be eligible for the Trainers course. Starting in the fall, Level I courses will be booked by provincial affiliates and held throughout Canada to further the numbers of certified persons. Trainers will be provided honorariums for each course as determined by the provincial association. This is a wonderful opportunity for motivated individuals to gain instructor experience working with diverse audiences of athletes, recreational participants and up-and-coming officials. More information on the Train-the-trainers course will be listed on the calendar page of the website.

3. Provincial Updates

A number of provinces are finalizing their applications for provincial government recognition for their amateur kickboxing associations (PSO - provincial sporting organization). Currently, Ontario , Newfoundland, PEI, and Nova Scotia are working with CKA/CASK in this process. It is hoped that by the end of 2006, there will be PSOs in 7-8 provinces.

Once a provincial group has become a member of CKA/CASK they will be permitted to assign a fee to members for competitive events hosted within the province. Information on any changes of fees due to provincial associations will be provided by those associations and our office. It is expected that the increase will be very small in the first year of any provincial operation.

This is exciting news for amateur kickboxing in Canada. For many years amateur kickboxing was non-existent in some provinces, and run with little government and organizational support in others. The future looks bright as this process continues to move forward. There are now plans for some province-province events, and already early plans for the very first Canadian National Championships to be held in late 2006/early 2007. More news to follow!

4. International Events

Two international events are currently being planned for 2006. The WFK will host their World Amateur Championships in the Central-Asian country of Uzbekistan from April 25-May 3. These championships will have divisions in full contact, low kick, Thai, point and continuous - for men, women and juniors.

The trials for this championships is being hosted by the ROUND ONE KICKBOXING CLUB in London, Ontario and will be held on February 25-26. If you are are interested, ensure that you have a Canadian passport (or apply for them immediately). Once the team is selected - successful athletes will be required to provide their passport numbers immediately to apply for VISAs. The approximate cost of this trip will be $2600-$2900 (flight, accommodations, travel).

Nearby hotels are : Comfort Hotel Downtown - 1-800-228-5150 ($70-$170/rm); Delta London - 1-519-679-3957 ($100-$210/rm) ; Knights Inn - 1-800-418-8977 ($50-$90/rm). More information on the trials and directions to ROUND ONE can be found on the website.
