2024 AUSTRALIAN U23 DEVELOPMENT SQUAD

With the Brisbane 2032 Olympic Games now less than nine years away, the development of current junior and cadet athletes is essential to achieve medal performances at the home Olympic Games.

The National Judo High Performance program is shared model between the Combat Institute of Australia (CombatAUS) and Judo Australia (JA) introduced in January 2021.

This development program is designed for identified talent not yet categorised or categorised Emerging and is delivered, and is funded by from the AIS Performance Pathway Strategic Investment Grant and our athlete families.

MOVING THROUGH THE PATHWAY PROGRAM

In order to create sustainable success for judo in Australia, it is essential that there is an adequate pathway program for young athletes who are working towards international representation.

 

This includes providing support for:

· Technical and tactical development;

· Physical development;

· Performance behaviour and psychological development,

· Optimised environment to thrive and develop in.

More detailed information for the program set up is included in appendix B.

Judo Australia Athletes as part of the Development Squad or categorised Emerging are under the direction of JA and can be either Cadet, Junior, or Senior depending on the international results and commitment to date.

Research shows it takes successful athletes 8-10 years to

progress through the pathway and achieve senior

international performances. This can only be achieved if

athletes train and compete consistently from year to year

and are exposed to challenges that are

developmentally appropriate.

Note - A mid-year review/selection process will be conducted after the 2024 National Championships by exception only, where athletes may be added to the selected group if their performance in the first six months warrant their addition.
