Disability Judo Volunteering Opportunity

Disability Judo Volunteering Opportunity

Would you like to volunteer and gain experience working with athletes with a disability?

Forrester Disability Judo Hub is a JudoScotland Workforce Development Project based at Forrester/St Augustine's Community Sports Hub. The vision of this project is to create opportunities for coaches and volunteers to gain experience working with people of all ages, with physical, sensory or learning disabilities.  By creating a strong workforce, the aim is to enhance the participation and opportunities in judo for athletes with disabilities throughout Scotland.
 
At Forrester, judo has something for everyone and each participant’s motivation to join in may differ: to get fit and healthy, to meet new friends or to learn new skills. Whatever the reason, the coaches aim to make every class as enjoyable and beneficial as possible for all those who take part and help build self-confidence, promote self-discipline and improve fitness and physical literacy.
 
The main goal is to be as inclusive as possible and allow everyone the time to grow in the different avenues of participation. If it’s competitions that appeal, these players will be prepared and nurtured through an array of fun, skill-based activities and the progressive technical syllabus. Competing is not for everyone, so all classes are just great fun and take place in an environment where everyone can learn and progress through the grades at their pace.
 
Whatever appeals most, JudoScotland concentrates on teaching the important culture of the sport of judo and encourage the athletes to be humble, whilst the coaches and volunteers respect and appreciate the individuality of all.

JudoScotland is looking for volunteers to help create a challenging and fun-packed atmosphere at the weekly sessions. No prior judo knowledge is required; however, strong people skills would help.

These fantastic opportunities would best suit those who enjoy engaging with and inspiring the next generation; our motto is ‘Ganbatte’ - ‘Try Your Best’!

Hub Sessions
