  • Is your EKF Licence Valid?

    Is your licence valid?Members are reminded that to participate in any EKF event, they must have a current and valid EKF licence.

    Due to some abusing the current system, anyone who is unable to produce their licence on request, will be barred from participating in any EKF event including squad training, competitions, referee course, etc.

    If you have any doubts about the validity of your licence you are advised to check with your instructor or head of association. Licences are only valid for 12 months, and each carry a unique number.
