British Judo national inclusion training day
The British Judo Centre of Excellence will once again play host to the British National Inclusion Open Training Day on Saturday 9 February.
This is a national training day open to all senior and junior players that have a physical, sensory or intellectual impairment. All activities are suitably adapted for all disabled athletes - so there is fun to be had by all.
British Judo Association Adaptive Working Group Lead Kerry Tansey will be coaching alongside members of the Great Britain coaching team and members of the Great Britain Squad (competition and training commitments dependent). There will also be a presentation to parents and coaches explaining the pathways and processes within Adaptive Judo along with the recognition with European Judo Union and International Judo Federation.
Senior Adaptive Judo Referee Ron Cleere will again be on hand to cover refereeing, while Jean Cleere and Andrew Scott, both senior championship controllers, will be giving advice on competition levels and processes.
A number of the successful Great Britain European Judo Union and Internal Judo Federation medallists will also be in attendance on the day alongside some senior Great Britain Performance athletes. Last year, London hosted the first Intelectual Disability European Championships, which was a tremendous success and saw the squad scoop a host of medals throughout the competition.
There will be two mat areas to accommodate different levels of visually impaired players, as well as other disabled players. Wheelchair players, with their care workers or coaches, will enjoy this training day as it is open to all levels for junior and senior judoka wishing to have a fun day of training - with top coaches involved in British inclusion.
The day is free to attend, however you must fill out and return the entry form by Monday 4 February 2019.
