Coaching Conference Day 1
February 25 @ 10:00 am - 2:30 pm£15.00
Join us on the mats of the Longtower, as Nigel Donohue from the BJA takes us through what it takes to join the a performance team, compete at the top level and gives us an insight into what it takes, to make a club player into an international competitor.
He’ll also expand on his role as the Performance Director to show us on the mats how to improve our own coaching and analysis of players at all levels of club standard as well.
You will then have the chance to quiz both Nigel and Matt Divall (Head of Performance Pathway at the BJA) on all things Judo and development.
Then in the afternoon…
How would you like to learn from a 3 x Olympic medallist and a 5 x World Champion!
We are delighted to let you join us in a masterclass from Yoko Tanabe.
Yoko needs no introduction in the world of female Judo and we are delighted she is joining us in the Longtower to showcase her skills and competition winning techniques and mindset. In turn she will be helping us all learn how to execute the techniques that made her one of the most successful competitors in her time.
