We were able to provide extra classes at Hilton Hall Community Centre (funded by the Community Development Foundation c/o the Spring Vale Community First Panel as part of 'Community First Funding') that "provide opportunity for youngsters to aspire and develop in the Olympic Sport of Judo" (our project aim), because we believe that Today's young Judoka are Tomorrows potential Olympic Champions. 

 

Our Mini Judo Festival event was jointly-funded by Community First Funding and by Hilton Hall Community Association and WYJC.  We have also had some Private Sponsorship for which we are most grateful and send our Sincere Thanks to our Sponsor (who wishes to remain anonymous).

Many thanks to Dee, Debbie, Heather and Alan, who did the Timekeeping and Recording and for organising the competitors' competition sheets & paperwork.  Many thanks to the St. John's Ambulance Team who attended our event all day and to our Competition Referee and everyone who helped put the mats out in preparation for the event last week (and put them away again today after the event had finished).  This whole project was a major success and we will be posting more photos and a report on all medal wins / results, soon.  A Big thank you to our Sponsors and everyone who helped ensure the success of this project.  If any of our Parents / Spectators have some good photos and willing to share them with us, please send the jpeg images to wyjc2009@aol.co.uk      -     "Thank You One & All".
