As you are filling out the ‘Start a Dojo’ application, you will arrive at the ‘Name your Dojo’ section. The name of your Dojo will be suggested in the format [City/Town/State]@[Sponsor/Venue Name], or in a large city in the format [Neighbourhood/Area], [City]@[Sponsor/Venue Name].
Naming your Dojo including name of sponsor
If you do have a business or corporate sponsor, for example this might look like ‘Dublin@Bank of Ireland’, in which case Bank of Ireland has agreed to be the sponsor. Please ensure that the sponsor has agreed to sponsorship before including them in your Dojo name and that they are fully aware of all details regarding their role within the Dojo.
Naming your Dojo including name of venue
If you simply have an agreement with a venue and they are providing a space by way of sponsorship, for example the name might look like 'Dublin@Docklands Library'.
Naming your Dojo without the name of sponsor/venue
If you do not wish to display your specific venue or sponsor’s name within your Dojo name, this is also fine. Likewise if you have no sponsor, in which case the name might simply be [City/Town/State]@[Rough Location] for example, Dublin@Docklands.
Please remember to avoid using the words ‘CoderDojo’ in your Dojo name.
