USA Taekwondo is excited to announce the Junior National Team who will be competing at the World Championships in Burnaby, Canada in November, along with the list of coaches and support staff who will also be making the trip.

Athletes qualified via the recent Junior National Team Trials event which was held in August in Colorado Springs. All coaching appointments were reviewed by the Coaches Advisory Council. All coaches, support staff and chaperones will be required to pass a background check and to complete SafeSport Training prior to traveling with the team.

USA Taekwondo wishes all participants good luck in competition, and we look forward to bringing home a haul of medals to the U.S.
