Who is this Aimed at:
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.
