The government of Newfoundland and Labrador through Sport NL Appoints Organizations for each sport as the official provincial sport organization (or PSO) for the province. That organization oversees the operation of it’s sport in the province and hold heavy influence in the way the sport is organized.
Since the inception of NLATU we have sought the government appointment for PSO status to insure that our members (who constitute the vast majority of WTF taekwondo practitioners in the province) are not dictated to by other smaller organizations who do not have our best interests in mind.
As of March 2015, the NLATU is now recognized as the interim provincial sport organization for taekwondo in Newfoundland & Labrador!
We hope that with this position we will help make taekwondo in Newfoundland and Labrador flourish, and before long we hope to assemble a competitive provincial team who can represent our province on a national and international level.
