BC Taekwondo Referee News
Happy New Year! Our first official referee seminars for 2017 are coming up to prepare for the BC Championships and Junior/Senior Team Trials. New kyorugi rules are now in effect and it will be very important for all referees to take a seminar and understand the new rules and hand signals.
Spaces for each seminar are limited, so register early – register now! Details below and on the referee website. Please forward this email to any others who you think may be interested in officiating and to coaches and athletes who want to learn the new rules.
