The Abaco Judo Club announced the Abaco Team on May 21 that will be attending the 2015 Jr. US Open Judo Championships in Fort Lauderdale, Florida in July as they seek to begin fundraising initiatives to assist the team in representing in The Bahamas.

Coach Regina Parotti was named Vice President of The Bahamas Judo Federation with responsibility for Northern Abaco. She said that “this is to help facilitate Mr. Kelly in Bimini and we’re doing our best to get established in Freeport.”

She leaves in two weeks to go to Mexico to represent the Bahamas in the Latin American and Caribbean Judo Conference.

She noted that as they prepare for the US Open, Sensei Albert Lill will return to assist with the training for the team going to the US Open. The team is Desmondo Bootle, Desmond Bootle, Rebecca Strachan, Jonathan Strachan, Rachel Rolle, Sebastian Parr, Dre Hall and Ozeke Swain.

While they have a little more time to prepare they are as usual faced with the dilemma of raising finances for the trip, to attend the US Open which runs from July 16 through 20 in Fort Lauderdale. Sensei Mickey Munnings from Nassau will be the head coach of the team.
