After reading these announcements, the Singapore Taekwondo Federation (STF) urges all affiliates to plan their coach and equipment requirements for next year’s competitions.
Tournament Coach Passes
The Management Committee reviewed the current way of issuing event coach passes and found that it was not efficient and effective.
It has decided to issue tournament coach passes instead. The passes are classified as follows.
Tournament Coach Pass (Special)
Tournament Coach Pass (Kyorugi)
Tournament Coach Pass (Poomsae)
Coaches who hold at least a taekwondo coaching (level 1) certificate and a poomsae coach certificate will be eligible for the tournament coach pass (special). Those who have only the taekwondo coaching certification or NCAP technical certification will be eligible for the tournament coach pass (kyorugi) only. The tournament coach pass (poomsae) will be for those who have only the poomsae coach qualification.
The passes are valid for three years and must be worn by coaches involved in any tournament organized or sanctioned by the Singapore Taekwondo Federation (STF).
Qualified coaches who wish to apply for the passes must attend a briefing which will be conducted on Saturday 27 October 2007 from 5.00pm to 7.00pm at the National Training Centre. Please call Jolene or Theresa at 63451491 during office hours to register your interest in participating in the briefing.
STF members who obtain their coaching qualification later will be issued the passes on successful completion of their courses.
Head Gear and Body Protectors
For future championships, the STF will not loan out any more head and body protective equipment. Affiliates are advised to make their own arrangement to obtain the approved equipment.
