With the sucess of our Junior and Youth Classes and the great support of parents/guardians , our small dojo space can accomodate no more students and remain safe. We have, as you know, been looking at how we can grow and develop as a club for the benefit of all members. In order to facilitate growth, more space is needed, so we have met with the Community Centre Management to arrange hiring out the main sports hall. As you are probably aware, the Community Centre is quite busy so we have to alter our training timetable to take advantage of available free slots.
Having comitted to hiring the main hall space, the club has also made a substantial investment (to the value of €7,000) to buy one hundred brand new high quality judo mats. The upshot of this is that we will be able to train on more than twice the mat space we currently have in the upstairs studio. The new mats will be located in storage near the Main Sports Hall.
We will still be hiring out and using the upstairs Studio dojo space on a limited basis, as we can't get all the necessary time we need yet in the main hall for all scheduled classes.
Juniors : 17:00- 18:00 Main Sports Hall
Youths : 18:00 - 19:00 Main Sports Hall
Adults : 19:30 - 21:30 Studio - Upstairs
Youths: 17:30 - 18:30 Main Sports Hall
Adults: 19:30 - 21:30 Main Sports Hall
Juniors: 10:00 - 11:00 Studio - Upstairs
