Dear Victorian Poomsae Referees

please note that there will be an STAL Poomsae refresher on the 26th of June 2016, presented by GM Russell Wood.

This is not an accreditation seminar and no accreditations will be issued.

The refresher is open to all existing OTU, TA and STA accredited Poomsae Referees it will be a great way to catch on the latest WTF Rules and interpretations in light of the upcoming Victorian state team selections.

An STAL RPL form will be ready in the near future and if ready by the refresher, applicants will be able to bring it with them to the refresher for collection, the RPL form will be the only way applicants with existing accreditations will be able to convert to STAL equivalent at this stage.
