Elite Virtual Tournament 1

Ontario Karate Federation is pleased to announce that we will start a series of 5 Elite virtual tournaments.

These Elite Tournaments will serve for keeping our Elite athletes involved in tournament practice until in person tournaments will be allowed. And will serve to select participants in Ontario Winter Games which will take place at March 3-6 of 2022 (only for 12-13, 14-15 and 16-17 categories). Also, will be used for Presidential Incentive Program for 2020/2021 season, to qualify for that program athlete will have to participate in all 5 tournaments.

Tournaments will contain Kata, eKumite and Para categories.

Kata and Para portions of tournament will be in real time over Zoom on Saturday or Sunday within the tournament’s dates. eKumite portion will be performed same way as any other eTournament over days and rounds with video upload.

We are planning tournaments on following dates:

  1. First Elite tournament only from March 27th till April 1st.
  2. Second Elite tournament would be same time with Recreational League Tournament 3 - April 24th to April 29th (dates might change)
  3. Third Elite tournament would be same time with Recreational League Tournament 4 - Toronto Open - June 5th to June 10th (dates might change)
  4. Fourth Elite tournament only - July 10th to July 15th (dates might change)

Those tournaments will let you accumulate points as in regular Selection tournaments. And will serve to select participants in Ontario Winter Games which will take place in from March 3-6 of 2022 (only for 12-13, 14-15 and 16-17 categories). Also, will be used for Presidential Incentive Program for 2020/2021 season, to qualify for that program athlete will have to participate in all 5 tournaments and comply with other conditions of that program.
