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 becomes the official governing body for events and oversees the operation of it’s sport in the province. The PSO 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 any other organizations.
As of Feb 2016, the NLATU is now recognized as the official 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.
