2018 Referee Refresher


The Referee Refresher Course held on Saturday 14 July 2018 at the Toa Payoh Sports Hall attracted more than 150 participants.

As it was essential for them to have consistency in the interpretations of the new rules of the game when officiating, the course focussed mainly on clarifying the more important rules and applying the rules in various situations. Time was also allotted for practical practice.

Theory, practical and scoring tests were conducted on Friday 3 August 2018.


The Singapore Taekwondo Federation (STF) would like to ensure that the referees are knowledgeable and competent with the new rules before they are allowed to manage the competition.  It is the responsibility of the STF not to compromise the standard as it is also responsible to the athletes and their coaches.


All referees will be required to attend a mandatory review session which would be held on Sunday 26 August 2018 at 2.30pm at the STF National Training Centre. 


Referees who have not completed the scoring component may do so after the review session.


Please call the Secretariat at 6345 1491 by Wednesday 22 August 2018 to register for the review.  No payment will be required.
