For Parents


COMMUNICATION IS THE KEY

If you can’t make it to class – give us a call! Or drop us an email to keep Instructors informed and students brought up-to-date.

As a recreational community it is important that we have active and positive communication.  At times you will have questions that you would like to have answered or issues dealt with relating to your child’s progress or participation in events. We encourage you to address these issues or concerns in the following way:

1.    Your first point of contact should always be your child's Instructor who knows your child best.
2.    If your Instructor is not immediately available and you need a quick response, please speak to reception and ask to have a message passed on as quickly as possible.

If you believe that your son/daughter would benefit from special assistance of some sort, or you think the confidential opportunity to discuss your child would be helpful, appointments can be made through Head Office during the day.  These meetings are strictly confidential.

Students and Parents can ask to speak to their Instructors, Centre Managers or Directors at any time.  Appointments can be made through your Centre’s Reception during class times or Head Office, 9-4pm.

For any matter relating to Taekwondo or Fitness programs it is most appropriate for you to contact your Head Instructor.   For Class matters it is best to speak to your child's Instructor. For wider concerns, relating to  Policy or Organisation or for issues unresolved through the already mentioned channels, please do not hesitate to contact Jeanette or Martin Hall.

In an emergency situation it is best to contact Head office directly by calling 9330.0032 or email info@hallstaekwondo.com.au

Hall’s Taekwondo endeavours to share with you, as the parent/s of Taekwondo students and athletes, the major responsibility of providing a stable, loving and supportive environment.


On a competitive note we need to be aware that:

There are many benefits to young athletes being involved in competition including self-discipline, good sportsmanship, and time management skills.

Together we need to understand long term growth and development of a young practitioner and how it impacts on performance.  Physical development is reliant on consistent,  regular training to evolve the physical, intellectual, emotional and social skills.

We need to be realistic in terms of expectations; factoring in age and skill level. Children are sensitive to parents’ expectations. Please be sure your expectations are realistic but don’t underestimate the capabilities of children as they embrace the joys of training.

Competition allows  a young athlete to experience success and to learn how to treat success and failure as two sides of the same coin, whilst becoming healthy and physically fit.   As a parent, your major responsibility is to provide a stable, loving and supportive environment.  This positive environment will encourage your child to continue. Please show your interest by ensuring your child's regular attendance at training and  by coming to gradings, championships or events when they are offered.

Children will emulate our attitudes.  By coming to Hall’s Taekwondo you are obviously striving towards positive health and well being so good sportsmanship at all times, towards  coaches, officials, opponents and teammates goes without saying.   We appreciate your  participation and endeavour to uphold the standards you expect.
