Get Texas Judo to the State Collegiate Tournament!
Who are we?
Texas Judo is a co-ed judo club at the University of Texas at Austin. We are open to all skill levels and aim to better ourselves mentally and physically as individuals through the art of Judo. We practice Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 6:00-8:00pm and Sunday from 4:00-6:00pm in the Rec Sports center. We all share a passion for this traditional sport and love to see each other succeed and the sport thrive!
We are one of the smaller sports organizations on campus with around 30 active members and 2 coaches. We are non-profit, run entirely by students, and our dues are only $40 for each semester which allows us to send our members to one or two tournaments around Texas. These tournaments, usually have low entry fees and only take one day to travel, compete, and come home. Entry fees for the Collegiate State though are between $55 and $100 and weigh ins are the night before, which means we will need to cover hotel costs and meals for all of our competing members. We expect at least 10 members to compete so these expenses will add up quickly.
With your help, we aim to send our team to this state tournament so we can qualify for Collegiate Nationals! Our goal of $1000 will make it possible for us to send half of our team to College Station so that newer members can experience what a large tournament is like, more experienced members can refine their skills through competition, and so all of our members can bring some medals home to Austin! We appreciate every single donation that puts us even $5 closer to our goal!
