Developing an exceptional club requires an exceptional effort from its elected committee, club members and coaches. The winning club will have excelled in numerous aspects of club management and performance, on and off the court.
Win a prize of £1,000!
The winning club receives an award of £1,000! The prize must be used toward club development and capital purchases.
The award is reserved for a single university club each year that has excelled across the board in: club management, club development, media management, member recruitment & retention, member development & support, competition performance, team spirit and more. Your club may be maintaining a winning record while continuing to develop at the highest level, or you may be the most rapidly developing smaller club that has made the greatest strides in the last 12 months. A club committee receiving the Dr. Un-Yong Kim Club of the Year Award can be assured to have performed at an exceptionally high level across the academic year.
The Dr. Un-Yong Kim Club of the Year Award is named in remembrance of Dr. Un-Yong Kim, former IOC vice president, founding president of World Taekwondo Federation and Kukkiwon, global sports leader and diplomat. Dr. Un-Yong Kim is widely known as the “father of Olympic Taekwondo” for having made the greatest of all individual contributions to the development and recognition of taekwondo as an Olympic sport. The award celebrates an exemplary university club committee that have has made a significant contribution to their members on and off the court, nurturing and growing university taekwondo through their passion and organisational excellence this year.
