Effective June 24 ,2017 the current edition of the WTF Competition Rules will be in full effect. Meaning that all WTF taekwondo tournaments will be bound by these rules and interpretations. In Manitoba, the first sanctioned tournament that will be using these will be on June 17, 2017. At this time, Manitoba will be introducing these rules and observing them in full force subject to IVR and PSS limitations.
In preparation, Taekwondo Manitoba and the Referee Committee will be hosting a half-day referee information session on:
June 10th, 2017
Magnus Eliason Recreation Centre
430 Langside St., Winnipeg
This is available to existing referees only. Coaches or athletes are also welcome.
Snacks will be provided. Note that this will be an informal session, covering mostly practical applications. It is not a certification course and will not replace the official course normally offered in the fall. It will not extend qualification expiry past December 31, 2017.
Taekwondo Manitoba membership is required.
Payment by cash or cheque can be done at the venue.
Due to the complexity of the new rules, only those referees that have refreshed at a seminar Nationally or Provincially or attended this event will be permitted to centre referee on June 17, 2017 or at future events.
