TWO STAR AWARD FROM AUSJUDO
Coral Coast Judo Club has received a two star award from the Aus Judo StarClub Program. Clubs are ranked on their membership numbers over the previous year. It is pleasing to see the club move into the program with a two star award (for clubs over 50 members but under 75 members). Our membership numbers currently rank us as the number two club in Queensland for membership numbers. Not bad for a regional club in any state! Our goal is to increase the 2017 award to three stars (75 - 100 members).
Coral Coast Judo Club was pleased to host Paul Nelson, President of the JFAQ at a training camp over the weekend of the 22nd and 23rd of October, 2016. The event commenced on Friday night with Paul Nelson providing the NCAS course for 8 coaches. Saturday saw coaches, Sebastian Temesi (current National and Oceanic <90kg champion) and Andreas Schmidt providing developmental training and assistance to the 32 junior and 16 senior judoka who attended. Judoka from Cairns, Innisfail and Townsville joined our locals for an informative and demanding two days of judo. The Club would like to thank Paul for providing the NCAS training, Andy and Sebastian for the program and all the volunteers who made the training camp a success.
SALSA SORENSEN ASSOCIATION DONATION
Salsa Sorensen Association has donated $5000 to the Club. The generous donation from this local charitable association will enable our Club to increase its training mat area. This increase will allow the Club to hold training weekends for the FNQ Region and help our Club with our growing membership base.
