“Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.”
Bishop Challoner Judo Club had two players attending the British National Inclusion Open Training Day at the performance centre.
This national training day was open to all Senior and Junior players that have a Physical, Sensory or Intellectual Impairment (including under 8s). All activities with the sessions are suitably adapted for all athletes with a disability so there is fun to be had by all.
The day was really well run and all the players at the event looked like they had a fantastic time. There was an unusual plastic duck based raffle not resulting in a boring draw but the winner being chosen after throwing the ducks at one of the coaches! Bags of fun. Some picture below:
The judo we practised was adapted to cope with the different physical and mental skills the players had and as usual we have stolen a few ideas to bring back to the club.
It’s tremoundously rewarding attending these events and the efforts by all players impressed the coaches and parents enourmously. They can’t be run without volunteers and judging by the big smiles on the faces they also had a fab time. We will keep tabs on the next organsised event and let everyone know.
