Sports Taekwondo Australia
Dear Athletes, Coaches and Officials
We wish to bring to your attention the following important information about the 2015 Australian open event:
2015 Australian open and 1st Oceania Para Championships – Entry Fees
You have submitted an entry form for the 2015 Australian Open and we look forward to seeing you in Melbourne, Australia.
Unfortunately, there has been an error regarding the entry fee. Instead of charging USD (US dollars) the on line system charged many people AUD (Australian dollars) by mistake.
We have now rectified this on the on line system, however if you were charged in $AUD instead of $USD, you will need to pay the shortfall in the entry charge when you arrive at the registration and accreditation desk. This only applies if you have been charged the incorrect $AUD entry fee.
Below is the event package notice published on 20th April 2015 showing the correct entry fees in $USD. The notice below was correct but the package contained an incorrect reference to $AUD instead of the correct $USD currency.
Discounted Registration Fees:
· US $120 per athlete (6th Australian Open & 1st Oceania Para-taekwondo Championships)
Discounted entry fee period will begin on· 23rd April and end on 30th April 2014, at 11.59pm local Swiss Time.
NB·: US $50 for each additional division registered for Australian Open
Regular Entry Fees:
· US $150 per athlete. (6th Australian Open & 1st Oceania Para-taekwondo Championships)Regular entry fee period will begin on 1st May 2015 at 12.00am local Swiss time and end on 31st May 2015 at 11.59pm local Swiss Time.

Below is the charges payable in $AUD and $USD for only those people who were charged the incorrect $AUD entry fee.
$120 entry fee – Additional fee now payable is $30 AUD or $23 USD
$150 entry fee – Additional fee now payable is $45 AUD or $34 USD
$50 entry fee – Additional fee now payable is $15 AUD or $11 USD
These fees must be paid at the registration desk in order to register and receive your accreditation.
You can pay either in $AUD (Australian dollars) or $USD (US dollars). There is no credit card payment option at the registration desk.
We apologise for this error.
Continental Union Coach Accreditation/Licence- CU Coach licence
You may be aware that in early 2015 all the WTF continental unions have passed a new regulation which requires all coaches to have their own continental union (CU) coaching licence to coach at any CU sanctioned G1 or G2 event (including other CU sanctioned events). Courses have been held for coaches in each CU.
As such, you will be required to present your CU coaching licence or accreditation (for example your ETU,PATU, ATU and AFTU coach licence – see attached) at the registration desk when you register next week. If you do not have such a licence then you will be required to pay a coaching fee of $150 AUD at the registration desk. If you have your CU licence then there is no charge. Please make sure you bring proof of your CU coach licence at the registration desk or else you will need to pay the coaching fee. Contact your relevant CU if you have any questions about your coach licence. See attachments to this email.
Over 700 athletes from 41 countries have now registered for the Australian open. We look forward to seeing you all in Melbourne, Australia and we wish you all the best of luck during the competition.
Kindest Regards
