The Junior squad(s) are for young people wishing to develop their Judo beyond club level.

The aims of the Junior Squad(s) are to begin preparing young Judoka from clubs, so that they will be young athletes ready to begin preparing for higher level Judo when old enough.

The focus is squad training is on athletic ability.

This includes physical strength, agility, speed, endurance and also Judo technical skills. Specifically, improving fundamental technical elements. At this stage we also introduce to the young athletes concepts like tactics, strategy and managing their training.

Although open to all, the sessions are aimed at those young people who are competing.

Our regular training sessions are 2 hours long and the physical intensity and technical demands are higher than most young players are used to. Please be aware of this.
