This will give the Instructors the opportunity to access and manage their competitors.

To assist with the smooth running of the Tournament, we kindly ask all schools/associations entering the competition to provide officials. It’s always a long day for the officials as our competition attracts 300+ competitors from both North & South of the UK. The more Officials we have the more breaks they get and the more rings we have working, which helps towards an early finish for everyone who travel a long way. Ringside refreshments and Officials buffet will be supplied as we are very grateful for your time and support.

Coaches are not a requirement but are welcomed, however we respectfully ask that all coaches are to be colour belt TKD students as Black Belts will be required to officiate.
