The Welsh Judo Association would like to remind all judo clubs in Wales that they need to purchase/renew their British Judo Club membership every year to ensure the club has Public Liability insurance to cover them against any claims that may be made against the club. 


The responsibility to ensure that each club has valid BJA Club membership lies solely with each individual club and is not the responsibility of the Welsh Judo Association.

Talent Cymru Development Programme


The Welsh Judo Association are pleased to announce the release of our Talent Cymru Development Programme. Our vision for the programme is to create an athlete centred. competency based, talent development model that delivers podium success at the highest level. We recognise that Welsh Judo can only achieve sustainable Olympic and Commonwealth success through a holistic, integrated and systematic method of developing talent. 


The programme will provide resources around athletes that have demonstrated performance competencies and behaviours that we believe make future high performance success at Olympic or Commonwealth Games possible. Our aim is to ensure we are able to provide individual, bespoke service to athletes on the programme with multi-disciplinary support provision, such as psychology, nutrition and strength and conditioning. This will be designed by the National Performance Coach and support staff in consultation with the athlete and personal coach and parents (depending on age), along with agreed targets and expectations for the year.


 Application forms should be completed in full and submitted with a letter of recommendation from the applicants personal coach with any supporting evidence they feel appropriate. There are 2 application windows in 2016:


16th January - 5th February

16th July - 5th August


Please also refer to the second document that will provide Welsh Judo Association members with an overview of the programme. It details the application process, athlete identification and a brief insight into the programme design, delivery and expectations.
