With effect from 2010, all clubs shall be required to provide poomsae referees to qualify for participation in poomsae competitions organized by the Singapore Taekwondo Federation (STF). These competitions include the National Inter-School Taekwondo Championships which have been scheduled to be held at the end of April 2010 for B and C Divisions and end of May 2010 for A Division.
To assist clubs to build a pool of poomsae referees, the STF will be organizing a national poomsae referee course on 5, 6 and 12 December 2009. The details of the course are attached.
All clubs planning to participate in the various poomsae competitions are encouraged to send participants for the course. Otherwise, they may have to ‘borrow’ referees just for participation. And this may be difficult as some clubs may not have enough referees for their own use.
