3. OYUS Judo membership and Term fee
The memberships are also managed in Suomisport, and the club needs to maintain a list of members. To become a member of OYUS Judo you'll need an invitation link that will lead you to Suomisport where you can do the request to join. Easiest way to obtain the link is to subscribe to our mailing list, where we send the link a few times at the beginning of the Autumn term. Or you can send email to judo (at) student.oulu.fi at any point of the season and request the link. Even better if you could warn your senpai or sensei at the practice that you are going to send email, so that someone from the board will go and read it as soon as possible and you don't have to wait too long by mistake! Then the invitation link is sent to you by the admin and you'll recieve it as an email. The email includes also instructions in English regarding the link functions. After you have activated the link and sent the join request in Suomisport, the club's admistrator will approve the request in Suomisport. After you have been approved to be a member, go to your Suomisport account and chesk MAKSUT (payments) > Avoimet (open payments), and pay the therm fee (5 Euros in season 2021-2022). And you are ready! The term fee is directed to OYUS Judo and we'll use it for your benefit: we'll provide first aid supplies such as ice packs and bandaids as well as sports tape at dojo, and maybe also snacks at club's annual meetings.
