National Inclusion Training Day Returns in February!

The British Judo Centre of Excellence will once again play host to the British National Inclusion Open Training Day on Saturday 9th February.

This is a national training day open to all Senior and Junior players that have a Physical, Sensory or Intellectual Impairment (including under – 8s). All activities with the sessions are suitably adapted for all athletes with a disability so there is fun to be had by all.

BJA Adaptive Working Group Lead Kerry Tansey will be coaching alongside members of the GB coaching team and members of the GB 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 EJU & IJF.

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 GB ID EJU and IJF medallists will also be in attendance on the day alongside some senior Great Britain Performance athletes. Last year, London hosted the first ID 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 and all disabilities. Wheelchair players with their care workers or coaches will enjoy this training day as it is open to all levels of disabilities for junior and senior judoka wishing to have a fun day of training with top coaches involved in British inclusion.
