Gibraltar 2019 Enquiries


In order to qualify for a place in Team Guernsey, each sport has had to set out their own qualification criteria. As team manager (Eddie) for judo, I have had to finalise this criteria, which can be seen below.

1.Be locally born and either be resident on or off the island

2.Not locally born, but have been resident on the island for at least two years

3.At least 14 years of age

4.Must have competed in at least 3 competitions (Minimum of one BJA event on the mainland). Obviously, the more competitions you do the better it will be in your preparation for the games.

5.If on island, regularly attend squad sessions that will be held in the dojo at Andy and Rachel’s house. It is understandable that you may not be able to attend every session, but you would be required to let the team manager be made aware of this, with a reasonable explanation.

6.If off island, regularly train and be able to provide details of this when requested by the team manager.

7.Regularly train in order to improve your cardiovascular fitness – this may mean training on your own, e.g. going for runs, to the gym or arranging with your fellow athletes to train together off the mat.

8.Minimum grade of 3rd Kyu (Blue)

9.Completed  the intent to qualify form and handed to the team manager by 30th September 2018
