Referee and Judge Certification

The Ontario Taekwondo Association takes great pride in the ability of its referees and judges. Several times per year the Referee Committee conducts seminars to certify new, and upgrade existing referees and judges. The OTA referees have a reputation of being professional, knowledgeable and impartial.

Starting in 2005, referee seminars will take two days, due to the volume of information to be learned and practiced. Certification requires passing of both a written and practical examination.

If you wish to join the team of officials, watch this site for seminars coming soon to a region near you. There is always a need for more referees and judges. Remember that in order to improve, athletes need ring time at tournaments; tournaments cannot take place without referees and judges.

We look forward to seeing you at a seminar soon. Upcoming Referee Seminars in 2012:
