Project 2024’s mission is to create a professional judo program in the United States that ensures payment for athletes and coaches with Olympic aspirations. Athletes will receive the financial support, development plan, technical expertise, and training necessary to reach their goals. The ultimate goal is to prepare America’s Judo Team and International Athletes for success at the Tokyo 2020 & the 2024 Olympic Games which will be held in Paris, France.

 

This training will occur over two consecutive Saturdays.  Each training period will last most of the day.

After the two weeks are complete the Project 2024 team will return in 6 months to re-evaluate the progress that has been made.
