What happens if your judo career is cut short by injury, or simply you don’t make the grade and find you are not capable of reaching the level you strive. Its good to have options, as a judo player, where do you want to be in 10 years? What about a career in your chosen sport, physio, development officer, community coach? and most importantly a career outside of your sport, university, teacher, builder? These are questions you need to pay attention to early on in your career and make plans to help support you through your judo experience. This is something we have looked at this week and set the students some homework. What skills do they need, what qualifications and experience do they need? what activities do they need to do in the next 12 months, 2 years, 10 years to gain these skills qualifications and experience. These are all serious questions that need preparation for, wether it be something as simple as booking an appointment with a careers adviser or looking into availability and costs of training courses or coaching qualifications.
