The First Poomsae Academy Team Selected

Dec. 14, 2021, 5:45 p.m. (ET)

(Dec 14, 2021) - USA Taekwondo hosted its very first in-person Poomsae Talent ID - Phase II camp in Colorado Springs. The Phase II event brought 73 athletes and 7 coaches in October, and it was a weekend filled with knowledge and dedicated Poomsae Athletes. The athletes who participated at the Phase II camp were selected from previous Online Talent ID camps hosted earlier this year. With the Talent ID camps being hosted online due to the Covid Pandemic and for the Safety of athletes and coaches, the Phase II camp brought back the Poomsae Community together again in person and it was an event worth remembering. Click here to view some highlights of the first ever In-Person Poomsae Phase II - Talent ID Camp. 

 

Please help us welcome the first Poomsae athletes who were selected at the Phase II camp to be part of the Poomsae Academy! Congratulations all - and USA Taekwondo looks forward to a great upcoming year and seeing all the Poomsae athletes grow and develop! Helping make the Poomsae National Team the best in the World!
