WYJC was awarded the prestigious 'Sport England Club Mark Award' in 2008 and we have ensured that the high quality standards needed to achieve this award have been maintained and developed further through continued personal & professional development of all of our Judo Coaches.  Knight, Kavanagh & Page acting as Auditors for Sport England carried out a 'Club Mark' External Verification on their last visit to WYJC and sent us an excellent review letter (just as in previous years; i.e. this was our forth EV visit since 2008).  You can read their comments by clicking onto the following Link (Click this Link to Read their Letter).  Pictured below: Senior Coach Keith standing next to 'Three Times Olympian' (and who was at that time BJA Chairman) Densign White (centre) presenting the Club Mark Certificate to the WYJC Head Coach Debbie (pictured receiving the Certificate), standing in front of some of our Junior & Senior Club Members.

This is when we received the Sport England Club Mark Achievement Award in September 2008, presented to us by Densign White, Chairman BJA
