Project Description

Officials’ Courses

Volunteer officials are the cornerstone of university sport, and training as an official is one of the very best ways you can continue to support the next generation of university taekwondo practitioners.

To develop the next generation of officials we run a number of courses each year for students and alumni looking to learn and develop their corner judging and refereeing skills, with free training courses available for current student of our member clubs.

We utilise a novel programme of home study, online theory tests, practical training courses, and supervised tournament training for the certification of officials, with all courses led by international referees. Separate courses are available in the latest rule-sets for both ITF rules sparring and WTF rules sparring, with certification available for Corner Judges (level 3) and Centre Referees (level 2). Please note that certified centre referees are paid an allowance when attending tournaments.

Please see our events calendar for more information on the specific individual courses and links to learning resources, and please contact us if you have any queries.

Corner Judges (L3)

Separate courses are available for both WTF rules sparring and ITF rules sparring disciplines. Study materials and online tests for corner judges (L3) are completely free. All nominated volunteer corner judges at the charity’s events without a third party corner judging qualification and everyone looking to attend one of the one-day training courses are required to first complete this online training.

The one-day training courses are also completely free for current students of our member clubs! As places are limited, priority will be strictly given to students who commit in advance to volunteer at upcoming events in the annual tournament series.

Centre Referees (L2)

Separate courses are available for both WTF rules sparring and ITF rules sparring disciplines. Candidates for the centre referee (L2) course must first complete all parts of their corner judge (L3) certification before taking the centre referee’s online test and attending a one-day training course. This excludes current holders of a suitable 3rd party corner judge certification and BSTF corner judge volunteers who have previously corner judged at 3 or more tournaments, who may request to begin at the centre referee (L2) training and certification level.

A limited number of Centre Referee places are available on each training course. Please note that certified centre referees are paid an allowance when attending tournaments.
