USA Judo Youth National Championships Return to York County in 2018
According to York County estimates, the USA Judo Youth National Championships have an economic impact of almost $1 million for the local economy with competitors filling hotel rooms.
The YCCVB and the Sport York program lured USA Judo and its national championship event to York County. Other Team USA events held in York County in the past decade include USA Handball, USA Softball, USA Judo and USA Taekwondo.
Anne Druck, president of the York County CVB said the event will be open to the public. “Hosting youth sports offers the greatest return on investment, considering the compounding economic potential for our community. Youth athletes have the greatest opportunities to return as visitors, students and residents, ensuring York County’s vitality for years to come.”
