Judo Girls Rock

Judo Girls Rock (The Female Participation Judo programme) is designed to engage with young females – a group underrepresented within our programmes of physical activity as well as on a national scale. Scotland suffers from poor health statistics, around 30% of girls aged 2-15 years are overweight or obese. Female participation rates are poor and research has highlighted that only 41% of girls aged 13-15 in Scotland meet the target of an hour’s physical activity a day.

In 2011, in partnership with Scottish Disability Sport, JudoScotland created the Judo Inclusion Group (JIG) to take on the role of Disability Judo. The vision of this group was simple, increase the number of people with a disability participating in our sport and to increase the number of coaches working with disability athletes within clubs. The key to success was the education of our coaches and focusing on the clubs ability to cater for athletes with all disabilities.

Following the expansion of JudoScotland, our Governing Body has never been in such a strong position to face the many challenges in recruiting and retaining young athletes with disabilities. Judo Clubs are essential to this development.
