General Introduction to U 16 Euro League

U 16 Euro League


By the age of 12-14, successful judokas have been through many years of training. From this

age on young athletes have an opportunity to become national representatives. However, in

each weight class there are those who were also competing for this great opportunity but did

not succeed.

In the first year, the majority of young athletes moving up to U18 had no opportunity to

experince a real sense of achievement (chiefly in international competition). This is also a

period of dropping out due to going to secondary school and certain natural, biological


Presumably, judokas born in 2000 will be the ones we can count on at the 2017 Youth

Olimpic Games in Győr.


Efforts must be made to keep as many judokas as possible in the age class too as the law of

large numbers applies in this case too.

The programme offers them opportunities of competing in organized form, and, from this

year on, even training camps.

Participation and scoring:

Several well-functioning tournaments have been incorporated into our program and this is

our requirement for future partners too.

Age groups: 2002, 2001, 2000


1st place – 7 points

2nd place – 5 points

3rd place – 4 points

4th place – 3 points

5th place – 2 points


Judokas will only be listed in the ranking after scoring for the second time, that is, having

been ranked in one of the first five places in two tournaments at least. Ranking will be done

independent of weight class on the basis of total scores and gender (, which means that 2-3

contestants can make it into each division).

Girls: 7 children – Gold Division, 4 children – Silver Division, 4 children – Bronze Division

Boys: 10 children – Gold Division, 5 children – Silver Division, 5 children – Bronze Division
