JudoGirlsRock 2019/20 applications are now OPEN!

Posted: 12/07/2019

Q: How can you increase your club’s membership, whilst at the same time encouraging more females into judo?

A: By signing up to JudoGirlsRock!

Having introduced over 200 new girls to club judo in 2018, the award-winning JudoGirlsRock returns for a 4th year! JudoScotland, in partnership with sportscotland, are now looking for the next batch of local clubs and coaches to deliver the 4th phase of this fantastic project.  The programme will continue to support the delivery and development of the people and experiences that make judo a fantastic sport for young females.

We want to create opportunities and encourage females to participate in the sport of Judo by considering what will inspire girls to enjoy our sport. With this approach we aim to enhance the level of participation of girls in Judo throughout the whole of Scotland, including the development of female coaches.

What is JudoGirlsRock?

JudoGirlsRock is open to girls of all ages. Each session focuses on judo-based activities and when possible, youth work styled workshops.  These workshop may cover various topics such as Health & Well-being, Cooking and Healthy Snacks, Internet Safety, Team Building and Bullying.

 What’s in it for the club?

  • Increased club membership.
  • Financial support to deliver the programme.
  • Multiple training opportunities for club coaches and youth coaches.
  • Additional support for the club from JudoScotland Regional Development Officers.
  • Additional support to remove the barriers to participation.
  • New positive role models for others within the club structure.
  • An exclusive JudoGirlsRock promotional pack.


What’s involved?

  • You’ll deliver judo to at least 20 new female members in a bespoke ‘girls only’ environment, which will see them achieving their first grade and participation in their first Skill sCool event.
  • You’ll have the skills and resources to provide a pathway of appropriate opportunities and experiences for JudoGirlsRock participants.
  • You'll help to promote JudoGirlsRock through your club’s social media channels.


Great! Where do we sign up?
