Cadet European Tour – Germany and Russia
Australia is sending a team of our best cadets to Europe in the last two weeks of March 2018. The boys team will attend the International Masters in Bremen, Germany followed by the Tula European Cup in Russia. The girls will attend the Thuringia Cup in Germany followed by the Tula European Cup in Russia. There will be a training camp after each of these events and selected athletes will have to be able to work through these camps. All three events are high level with very large participation, therefore we will only send our best and most capable cadets to gain full benefit from these opportunities.
The team will be chosen after the ACT International Open by the Cadet National Coaching Team and the Technical Director.
The following will be taken into consideration with the decision making:
- Performance and results at the ACT Open – this is not a sole contributor and winning ACT Open alone is not a deciding factor;
- Technical proficiency – ability to throw for ippon and win by ippon in newaza;
- Appropriate level of mat fitness and strength observed by the coaches during the competition;
- Professional performance and behaviour observed during competitions and training camps.
Any questions in relation to this tour should be directed to the Technical Director via Maria.Pekli@ausjudo.com.au
