The Welsh Judo Association is the Governing Body for the sport of Judo within Wales, with various services devolved to it by the British Governing body, the British Judo Association. The WJA has been established for more than 50 years. The Associations activities and developments is supported by Sport Wales.
The Welsh Judo Association is excited to let our members know about the new membership database we are launching at the beginning of July! As with the current database our members and coaches will be able to purchase licences, renewals and gradings online. However, we believe we have developed a new database that is a lot more user-friendly so that we can make your experience of buying licences online a better one. We are expecting minimal disruption during the changeover process, but as with any system changeover we may experience some minor issues during the first week of July – we thank you for your patience in advance.
Thank you for your ongoing patience. Unfortunately we are unable to hold the event this weekend (18/19 June). We have applied to run the event on a different date. We shall update website and facebook page upon confirmation of the date.
3rd July 2016 - Gemau Cymru (Location: National Dojo, Cardiff)
29th and 30th October 2016 - Welsh Open (Location: Newport)
19th and 20th November 2016 - Welsh Closed (Location: Brecon)
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.
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.
