A very busy first week of the Easter block of the European Judo Union Level 4 performance coach award. This award is split across six two-week blocks over a three year period and is arguably one of the best coaching programs in the world, across all sports.
Over these two weeks our two year groups will take three module. Year 1 students are doing a 30 credit module called “Applied pedagogy in Judo” and the year two students are doing two 15 credit modules – Sports Development and Talent Development Pathways in Judo. After th block each group will also have an online module each.
Lecturers this week have included….
Nuno Delgado (Olympic Bronze Medallist & EJU level 4 performance coach)
Dr Lisa Allen (Judo event manager London Olympics 2012)
Kat McDonald (Presented on Athletes in Education and works at TeamBath)
Matt Divall (England Excell coordinator and EJU level 5 high performance coach)
Craig Fallon (World and Olympic champion)
Our mat based sessions have been at Comberton Village College who Anglia Ruskin already work closely with for their judo program. These sessions have been world class! I will post more information on some of them in others posts.
It was also god to see some of our judo players from our full-time program making the most of this special environment and coming along to the sessions.
