Women’s artistic gymnastics is an exciting discipline to judge. Competitors perform amazing routines made up of dynamic skills, choreography, and apparatus techniques.
Throughout this course you will learn the roles and responsibilities of a judge, how to judge, and how to arrive at a fair score. Upon successful completion of the course you will be able to judge at club and regional competitions as a member of the judging panel.
Becoming a judge is a great way to get involved with your local gymnastics club and help in the development of the sport. Anyone interested in women’s artistic gymnastics is eligible to take this course but you’ll need to be familiar with the discipline.
Any individual that would like to judge as part of the judge panel at club and some regional level competitions.
Each discipline has the age requirement of 14 years old at club level.
Note: In some circumstances if you have previously competed at senior international level you may be able to start the judging pathway at National judge qualification, as you will already possess knowledge of FIG/UEG rules and routine composition. This is at the discretion of the Technical Committee for your discipline and they must be contacted in the first instance.
