2020 started promisingly.
But then Corona came.
- It went well at the Judoclub Freising eV 1964, not to say very well.
The year 2020 got off to a promising start, with a total of four departments bustling with activity.
The senior team even fought its way to the top of the table in the Northern District League under the leadership of coaches Andreas Schwaiger and Stefan Steinsdorfer.
But then Corona came.
The crisis has meanwhile completely paralyzed the club, which has a good 140 members and around 65 active members.
Although the departments are currently in operation again, this little plant of hope, as chairman Hans Reisch made clear at the annual general meeting at Viva Vita, is already in danger again.
"We have to be very careful."
"At the moment it is anything but nice," Reisch regretted in front of about 20 participants.
“We have to be very careful.
In the current situation, it is not easy to run such a club, ”explained the club boss, pointing out that discussions with the district and the city are almost constant.
"Nothing works without a hygiene concept," added Reisch, for example with regard to the use of the school's sports hall on Sternplatz.
But he had also brought good news.
The chairman pointed out that the trainer's allowance had been doubled in the wake of Corona.
The city of Freising is adding the same amount again, so that you can even create a little cushion.
Confirmed in their offices as a group were (from left) 2nd chairman and youth leader Michael Emmer, chairman and treasurer Hans Reisch and auditor Frank Ladd.
3rd Chairman Mark Singer also belongs to the board.
There was slightly positive news from the departments.
According to Reisch, the beginner courses have started again.
Of six participants, he also said that “some things had broken in”.
“The times are absolutely not fun for us,” the club chairman concluded his report.
District league season canceled
Andreas Schwaiger, coach of the senior team at JCF, remembered that the season started as normal.
“But in March there was a scythe.” Which was annoying because you had just been at the top of the district league before the round was canceled.
After that, there was no training for a long time before the modest start again in June.
First with running training and later even in the hall of the BC Attaching.
In fixed groups of five, they have managed to train there so far.
According to Schwaiger, this is also necessary because Kata championships will be held in March of next year, in which a number of Dan exams will also have to be passed.
In the area of judo preschool and popular sports, department head Gabriele Emmer was able to report on a new beginning and a new addition among women.
Youth leader Michael Emmer emphasized that after the restart it was "sluggish".
In the last three training units before the annual general meeting, however, there were at least eight young people.
Karl-Heinz Kiefer, head of the Judo with handicap division, was even “afraid that the group would fall apart”.
Sometimes you only trained with three people outdoors.
However, Kiefer expressed the hope that it would be possible to return to the hall from November.
Fortunately, they were able to pull off the open Bavarian championship in February - with three thirds, two second and one first place, as he proudly emphasized.
The association relies on a proven board team
The new elections were purely a matter of form.
The cash report - also presented by Hans Reisch - turned out to be positive with an increase of almost 1400 euros.
At the suggestion of the group, the assembly confirmed the leadership in the group in office.
In addition to honoring long-standing members, there was finally the question of what should happen to the Christmas party: According to general opinion, it makes little sense to stick to the currently rising number of corona infections.
Perhaps a summer party could be held next year, so the tenor.
