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 2017:
20th January - 6th February
17th July - 7th 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.
