(March 27, 2019) -- USA Taekwondo is excited to announce the newly established USAT regions will be hosting their first camps in the coming months. Look for these camps to go live with registration very soon.

We hope all of you will take advantage of this opportunity to train with athletes from your region and the newly appointed state coaches. Also, at these camps athletes that qualify and are interested in being considered for the World Taekwondo World Cup tag team event in Wuxi, China, can apply for a spot on the U.S. Team for this event.

Applicants for the World Cup Team will need to be at least 17 years of age or older during the calendar year of 2019. The World Cup tag team event will be held in Wuxi, China from August 23-25, 2019. USA Taekwondo will select the team from the applications received at the regional camps, and all applications will receive serious consideration.

The proceeds raised at these regional camps will be used to fund athletes and coaches from your region that are selected to the World Cup team. Everyone is invited to be a part of this exciting adventure and we hope you will be a part of it.
