Athletic Trainers & Taping of Athletes
Medical will be provided by Bare Essentials Sport Medicine. Sports Med Staff will be ringside and in medical tent to provide injury and illness care for all participants. Please remember when taping ankles or instep pads, competitors must comply with the rules set forth by the WTF and USAT.

Daedo-Truescore
Daedo-Truescore will be the official provider of the EBP (Electronic Body Protector) for the 2016 USAT National Championships. USA Taekwondo and Daedo-Truescore will provide the hogus to all athletes prior to each sparring match, which athletes will obtain at the equipment area. These hogus should be returned immediately to the equipment area after the completion of their match. Athletes who fail to return their hogu will be subject to disciplinary actions and assessed a replacement fee of the hogu.

All athletes are responsible for purchasing their own scoring foot gear prior to the event. Availability of the foot socks for on-site sales is NOT guaranteed. It is best if athletes purchase them prior to arriving at the following link. Be sure to purchase them from the official reseller of Daedo gear in the United States at www.truescore.com. http://truescore116.corecommerce.com/E-Sparring-Equipment/E-Foot-Gear-p24.html

Board Breaking “Holders”
ALL athletes are responsible for providing their own board holders. Athletes and/or their board holders, can obtain a board holding credential in the competition holding area the day of the competition for that division. This credential can only be used for the day of that competition and must be returned after your event has been completed. Again, USAT will not provide, nor “appoint” coaches/spectators to hold the boards during the board breaking competition for athletes.
