Floor and Vault Level 2

Floor and Vault Level 2

This is the second stage of the judging pathway for floor and vault competitions. With this qualification you are ready to judge at inter-club and regional level school and club competitions. 

Floor and vault competitions are great competitions to judge. You will learn how to judge technical and artistry skills and to look for the ‘perfect’ performance. Building on the skills gained during the level 1 qualification you will further develop your knowledge of how to judge floor routines, how to use symbols to record each exercise, and how to score exciting and dynamic vaults.

Before attending this course you will already have completed a Floor and Vault Level 1 qualification or be an experienced gymnast or a coach.
