US Open Taekwondo Championships
Las Vegas, Nevada
USA Taekwondo (USAT) will be hosting the 2013 U.S. Open Taekwondo Championships in
Las Vegas, Nevada at the Las Vegas Hotel & Casino (LVH) on February 19-23, 2013.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: Please note, given that the U.S. Open is sanctioned by the World Taekwondo Federation (WTF), all International Senior participants are required to obtain a WTF Global Athlete License (GAL) through their home country WTF Member National Association (MNA) per the WTF Competition Rules. Please work with your MNA to ensure you obtain your WTF GAL before traveling to the U.S. Open. Individuals who are not able to obtain a WTF GAL through their MNA prior to their arrival in Las Vegas will be able to purchase one from the WTF on site for $30 USD. However, individuals must be an approved member of their WTF MNA and be able to prove this onsite in the form of their National Membership card or confirmation letter from their WTF MNA. All registered applications for the U.S. Open will be cross checked with each WTF MNA in advance of the tournament to ensure they are a member of the WTF MNA.
Individuals should expect lengthy lines at the WTF GAL registration desk as there will only be one WTF representative on-site who will be able to issue WTF GALs. Questions about the process can be directed to USA Taekwondo via Travis Oosthoek at Travis.Oosthoek@usa-taekwondo.us or to the WTF via Justin Tenbeth at email@example.com. Thank you in advance for your cooperation and for supporting the US Open!
