From 2016 onwards, for all tournaments organized or sanctioned by the Singapore Taekwondo Federation (STF), clubs are STRICTLY NOT ALLOWED to
– employ coaches from other clubs to coach their members during the competitions and
– field their athletes under other clubs.
Clubs must produce sufficient coaches to take care of their own athletes during the competition especially when 4 courts are used. Athletes will be disqualified if coaches from their clubs are not available to accompany them to the arena. It will not be acceptable to use the excuse that the athlete’s coach is at another court as the competition cannot be delayed.
In order not to deprive any athletes from competing, the cap on the number of participants for all categories of ‘Kyorugi’ and ‘Poomsae’ Championships under the control of STF will be removed.
