In 2013 Leigh Judo Club secured Sportivate funding and began delivering outreach judo sessions to a variety of high schools and colleges in the local area. The project gives more young people aged 14-25 who are not particularly sporty the chance to discover a sport that they love.
During the sessions every participant taking part can work towards an event or personal challenge and when the sessions have finished, will be supported to continue playing sport.Our Sportivate project continues to be a resounding success both in increasing the judo participation numbers of 14-25 year olds as well as establishing the club as a leader in jdo educational delivery in the local area.
If you would like to find out more about our Sportivate initiative please don’t hesitate to contact us. Better yet, call into to the club and say hello to our Sportivate students!
