The Colorado State Taekwondo Association selected its annual team at a competition on August 4th, 2012. Since then the team has met for its first practices, with the sparring and poomsae teams meeting and training separately. The Poomsae Team had its first training at Championship Karate and Taekwondo in early September, while the sparring team had its first practice September 29th at the Korean Academy of Taekwondo.
To be on the CO State team, you must win first place in the Colorado State Team Trials. Once you do so, however, you will be able to attend all state team trainings as well as receive a free uniform and other gear from Pine Tree USA as well as a stipend from the Colorado State Taekwondo Association.
Non-state team members can still practice with the team, however they must pay $10 to the Colorado State Taekwondo Association in order to do so. At the first sparring practice, the masters present agreed that this is an excellent group of people to represent the state.
