We are very proud to announce that our young judo stars of the future have all been successfully selected onto the England Regional Development Squad ( REDS )
The England Squad program is a development program, which aims to prepare players with the necessary technical, tactical, physical, mental and lifestyle attributes to progress through the GB Pathway onto the World Class Performance Programme (WCPP) and achieve success at senior international level.
The key objectives are:
TO IDENTIFY young judo players with long term potential.
TO DEVELOP (both physically and mentally), by using the right training at the right time, taking into consideration the different needs of early and late maturers.
TO EQUIP these players with the skills, experience and knowledge needed to build a strong foundation for future achievements and long-term success.
Our young team recently attend an England Talent ID Day held at the British Judo Centre of Excellence in Walsall. During that day our team took part in a number of challenging judo and fitness tests. From these results the England Judo Programme Coaching staff have selected our Kingsley team to join this exciting new REDS programme, which puts our team on the entry level to Performance Pathways within GB Judo.
So many congratulations to all the team: Zach, Fintan, Amie, Jersey, Liam, Tristan, Brodie and Caitlyn.
