Event Update: British Taekwondo Sport Performance Youth Development Camps – May 2022

Details of upcoming British Youth Development Camps in London.

British Taekwondo’s Sport Performance Department are launching a new type of session for members – Youth Development Camps.

The first British Taekwondo Sport Performance Youth Development Camps are being held at Prendergast Hillyfields Sports Hall, Adelaide Avenue, Brockley, London, SE4 1JL between 10am and 3.30pm on Saturday 14th May and Sunday 15th May. Registration is now open.

Due to demand, the British Taekwondo Sport Performance team will be hosting an additional Youth Development Camp on Sunday 15th May.

Steve Jennings, Operations Manager of the British Taekwondo Sport Performance Department said “We have secured the first dates for our Youth Development Camps. These training days are aimed at any athletes with an ambition to be part of our squads in the future, it is an opportunity for athletes to build relationships with the staff team, learn the language that we use and become part of the pathway we are building.”

“Whilst our squad sessions are incredibly challenging our Youth Development Camps will be run slightly differently. The focus here is on having fun in a more relaxed atmosphere whilst teaching some basic fundamentals and improving technical skills. We hope that our members support these camps in the same way they have supported our squad sessions.”
