National Team Training

National Team Training

On Friday, January 16th, the National AAU Taekwondo Teams along with the full National Coaching staff and a good number of our Regional Coaches will be gathering in Ft. Myers, FL for our Annual Team Training Weekend! A total of 57 of our 10-11, 12-14, 15-17, and 18-32 Team Members have made the commitment to participate along with National Team Coaches Masters Greg Tubbs, Arlene Limas, Georgie Martinez and Luciano Medina.

"I believe this is the highest number of active Team Members to attend camp ever," says National Sport Chair Michael Friello. This year's camp is being hosted by Regional Coaching Staff Member Toby Oliver at his WCT Training facility in Ft. Myers, Florida.

The training kicks off on Friday at 5:00 PM with full days scheduled for Saturday and Sunday of this Martin Luther King Holiday Weekend. In addition to the training, AAU Taekwondo is also hosting a special dinner on Saturday night for athletes, coaches and parents of the team members.

"Last year's Cadet Team captured 17 of 22 possible medals at the Canadian Open in Montreal and our Junior Team took 1st Place at the German Open in Hamburg, Germany. And according to all of the coaches involved, this year's teams are even better! We are extremely pleased and very excited at what this year's Training Camp will provide."
