2017 TNZ Nationals Update

To all Instructors, Coaches, Athletes and Supporters,

The deadline for entries for the 2017 TNZ Nationals has been extended to mid-night this Saturday 21st October.

A reminder that Instructors can enter their team via a spreadsheet if this is easier. Please email the TNZ Nationals Coordinator Master Garry Carpenter at instructor@budosouth.co.nz if you would like to enter your team this way and Master Garry will forward you the spreadsheet.

Please note that in 2018 TNZ will be sending representative teams to the Kyorugi Junior World Championships and the Poomsae World Championships. The Junior World Championships are being held in Tunisia in April, while the Poomsae World Championships are in Taipei in September. We will also be aiming to qualify Junior athletes for the Youth Olympics which are being held in Buenos Aires in October next year.

As TNZ now has a Ranking System, and the TNZ Nationals is the only ranking tournament before the Junior World Championships, the TNZ Nationals is being viewed as a key part of the selection process for the team. Application forms for consideration will be made available to current TNZ members at the registration desk at the TNZ Nationals weigh-in (the night before competition begins). Keup 1 players (conditional) may also apply.

Also, the nomination criteria for the 2018 Youth Olympics has been finalised and can be found on the TNZ website: http://taekwondonz.com/selections/selection-documents/

And the NZOC website: http://www.olympic.org.nz/assets/Uploads/Buenos-Aires-2018-Taekwondo-Nomination-Criteria.pdf
