Who is this Aimed at:
Club judges that would like to develop their knowledge within judging as part of the E panel at regional level competitions within their chosen discipline, while also getting involved within the various panels such as D and E panels.
Each discipline has the age requirement of 18 years old. You are required to have Club/County/Regional/Zonal (Cycle 13) to enrol onto a regional course (dependent on the discipline).
We strongly recommend that you have judged a minimum of 3 Club/County/Grades competitions per year since holding the Club award.
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.
