JudoScotland is pleased to welcome five new Talent Development Support Coaches to the team. Alberto Borin, David Scobbie (Tayside Judo Club), Kirstin Gray (Destination Judo), Louise Renicks (Kanokwai Judo Club) and Reece Calder (Edinburgh Judo) will support National Talent Development Coach Gary Edwards to deliver the programme. They will support weekly TD sessions, squad training and identified competitions and camps, both domestically and internationally.

The quality of the applications and the high level of interest in these roles marks a positive future for the sport of Judo in Scotland. We are confident that our new Talent Development Support coaches will bring their level of expertise to develop technical/tactical, physical, and behavioural competencies in judoka, the three pillars of the Player Development Framework.

Gary Edwards, National Talent Development Coach said, “I am looking forward to working with our new Talent Development Support coaches, they bring with them an extensive and diverse level of experience, which can only benefit our young Judoka as they make their way through the TD pathway and beyond.”

We would like to wish Alberto Borin, David Scobbie, Kirstin Gray, Louise Renicks and Reece Calder the best of luck in their new role.
