Novices – We Need You!
With this year’s National Championships rapidly approaching, held again at the National Cycling Centre in Manchester over the weekend of the 12th & 13th September, we would like to encourage as many aspiring champions of the future to take part in this fantastic event.
As always, our elite and more experienced athletes will be battling it out, in the advanced competition on the Saturday. There are going to be some outstanding matches for sure, with many of the GB squad also taking part.
On the Sunday however, it’s a different story, as it’s is all about participation, gaining experience and rewarding talent as we host the novice competitions.
Did you know that on this day’s event, there are no grades permitted over 3rd Kup at all!
Also, some of the 76 categories available have previously only contained a few entries – giving people great chances to grab a National Championship medal!
Coaches – did you know that every competitor you enter from your club is contributing towards the team rankings and your goal of being crowned overall Club Champions 2015.
So please encourage as many of your up and coming athletes to take part on the Sunday, it’s a great experience, a great day out and encourages them to higher goals as they come up through the ranks.
Also for 2015, we will be once again giving some clubs the chance to enter a Tag Team in the TV show build up of the WTF World Taekwondo Grand Prix in October this year.
The top two winning teams at the National Championships, in each of the Cadet, Junior & Senior divisions, across the whole National Championship event, will be invited to enter a team into the Grand Prix nightly show, competing in front of a big audience on the biggest stage!
Even more reason for clubs to get as many athletes into the Nationals, gaining valuable team ranking points and some great rewards.
See you in Manchester!
