The Student National Taekwondo Championships Series 2020-21
March 2021 update: We are disappointed to confirm the cancellation of all 2020-21 BUCS Student National Taekwondo Championships Series in-person tournaments due to the ongoing covid-19 pandemic.
We once again commend all of the hard work of clubs’ committee members up and down the country who have been working exceptionally hard this year. There have been huge efforts made by club committees in the management of their clubs, and offering online, outdoors and socially distanced training at various points during the year, reacting to frequently changing rules and regulations.
Club committees, university staff and coaches, club volunteers and members have all been doing amazing things – keep up the great work!
We have been working to the last with venues, partners at BUCS, and others, to leave the door open as long as possible to host a full Championships event at the end of May 2021. However, on careful review of the options available for the charity and the university clubs we serve, and analysing the feedback from our club captains’ survey, we believe the risks for hosting any major Championships would outweigh the benefits to members – most particularly due to the limited contact training time available for student-athletes to safely get match fit before any tournaments this spring/ summer, and the substantial proportion of adults who will only be able to access a vaccine by the end of the summer.
Please check the BSTF website and social media channels frequently for updates. If you run into any issues and need advice then the BSTF is here for you, please use the website contact form, but bear in mind our staff are part time (due to being flexi-furloughed) so we may take longer than usual to respond.
Keep persevering, it will be just a little while longer until we can all see each other again person – roll on summer time!
