Dear Taekwondo Manitoba Members,
We would like to make a correction to our membership information which was send out to everyone in December. The information should not have stated that “You can be a member of Taekwondo Manitoba without being a member of Taekwondo Canada”. According to Taekwondo Canada’s Affiliate Policy which was posted on the Taekwondo Canada website on December 30, 2019 (see below attachment), it states that:
a. includes all competitive and recreational club/school registrants
b. All ages and belt levels of Taekwondoists registered with clubs or schools, of all stages of LTAD, who practice Taekwondo for recreational or competitive purposes shall be TC Registered Participants (RP) by virtue of their club/school affiliation or registration in the club/school programs or activities.
Please note that at this time, Taekwondo Manitoba will not be subsidizing the Taekwondo Canada membership (note: it has increased to $4.00 from $2.00) as we have done in the past. It is the role of the individuals to abide by the Taekwondo Canada Affiliate policy as written, as clubs/schools in Manitoba are not recognized nor have any standing within Taekwondo Manitoba. In Manitoba, only individuals have membership status and clubs/schools have no status.
Board of Directors
