A thoroughly enjoyable day for the first Welsh Special Needs & Adaptive Squad Training Day.

The 28thApril saw the first Welsh Special Needs & Adaptive Training Day at the Sport Wales National Centre and was, as expected, a brilliant event in setting the tone for a series of Special Needs training days to come.  The initiative is a fundamental part of our commitment to ensure the needs of members and those new to the sport with disabilities are met consistently across the organisation.

Roy Court MBE, WISP Judo, led judoka through a thorough warm up before the action got started on the mat.  Tom Hughes, Performance Operations Manager commented, “The first adaptive training was undoubtedly a great moment for disability judo in Wales. The first day was a huge success in bringing the adaptive judo community together, this puts our judoka in good stead as they prepare for the Britsh Adaptive & VI Open in August.”

Our work towards achieving an InSport Ribbon and progression towards Bronze award in 2019 is well on schedule as we look to present to achieve Ribbon Standard in June.

The Welsh Judo Association would like to thank Roy Court MBE for his continuous hard work in ensuring the implementation and promotion of the pathways in Special Needs judo throughout Wales and worldwide.  We would also like to thank the volunteers and coaches that attended the first training day for making it so successful.

The next session will be held on Sunday 21st July between 12.00pm - 3.00pm at the Sports Wales National Centre, Sophia Gardens, Cardiff , CF11 9SW. If you require further information please contact Roy Court MBE (royjudo2@hotmail.co.uk).
