Dove House Judo club is a satellite club within Shin Gi Tai Martial Arts Academy and is based at the Academy, The club started in October 2014 and is open to all Dove House pupils.

The Basingstoke based Judo club is a member of the Britsh Judo Association (BJA) and follows the BJA syllabus. The children within the club are currently working towards their next belts both within Dove House Academy and also with extra curricular training at Shin Gi Tai’s Judo classes.

Sport Hampshire and IOW along with The British Judo Assocation were instrumental in providing the funding to support this club in particular for the Mats.

Press Release

Local MP Urges more People to get involved in the Olympic Legacy through Satellite Clubs

Maria Miller MP visited Sport Satellite clubs at Totally Tennis in Basingstoke War Memorial Park and the Judo Satellite at Dove House Academy. The Satellite initiative is part of the London 2012 Olympic Legacy to get more young people regularly participating in sport through the expert coaching available in local sports clubs. The aim of the programme is to ensure that every secondary school and sixth form college in Hampshire is offered the opportunity to host a satellite club by 2016.

Satellite Clubs are Open to all young people across the local community including neighbouring schools, not just pupils from the school the club is based at.

The satellite clubs work alongside the “This Girl Can” campaign to encourage more women to play sport.

Maria Commented “These two satellite clubs offer more young people the opportunity to get involved in sports with expert coaching from local clubs. Too many young women drop out of sport in their teenage years because they don’t find a sport for them or the facilities don’t cater for their individual needs. This programme is part of a broader scheme to try to reverse that trend and get us all more active.
“The Satellite clubs are run by dedicated professionals who are committed to young people being given the chance to try a wide variety of sports that might otherwise be unavailable to them.

 

“More funding is available for more clubs and schools to set up satellite clubs in the town. We need more to get involved and reach out to children who currently may not take part in sport outside of school on a regular basis. “

 

Satellite Clubs are aimed for 11-25 year olds and delivered by Sport Hampshire & IOW, contact Priya Samuel, Satellite Clubs Development Manager 01962 845 156 priya.samuel@hants.gov.uk for further information.
