ATTENTION REGION 5 JUDGES! NEW APPLICATION FORM & PIFs NOW AVAILABLE

Greetings to all of our Region 5 Judges! Hope the summer is going well and we will see many of you at National Congress in Indianapolis in August!

ALL judges will need to complete the Professional Involvement Form (PIF) by September 1, 2015.

After the Region 5 Administrative Committee Meeting on June 25, 2015, we have approved a new tool to assist with the judges selection process. This application applies only to the LEVEL 10 , National and Brevet judges. You are now required to complete the New Application to be considered to Judge Region 5 Level 8, 9 and 10 Regionals.

Both application forms listed above can be found under the “Judges” tab at the top of the Region 5 web site. Additionally, these will be available on your State’s websites very soon.

Also, it is now required that a judge must have done a minimum of one day as a judging volunteer in a leadership position at any of our Region 5 Training Camps to be eligible to judge Level 8, 9 and 10 Regionals. Many of you have been doing this for many years and your volunteer work is appreciated and valued by our Region. The deadline is August 1, 2015 for all of our camps to be assigned as a technical assistant on an event with or without an ipad or to be assigned to lead judging rotations.  You can use this link (Judge Volunteer Form for Region 5 Camps) to indicate your availability for the camps.

We look forward to your continued involvement  and leadership in Region 5 !!

Char Christensen, Region 5 RTCC

CALLING ALL REGION 5 TRAINING CAMP JUDGING VOLUNTEERS

Please go to the Region 5 Training Camp Web Page and go to the Training Camps Judging Volunteer Form at the top of the home page or use this link (Judge Volunteer Form) to complete.

It is important to complete this form for ALL camps by the August 1, 2015 deadline to be assigned in leadership role. NO one will be assigned after this deadline. Only sign up for the Training Camp days and camps you want to be assigned to in a leadership role. ALL judges are assigned to the dates and camps selected with a confirmation of assignments coming out 2 weeks prior to the Training Camp.
A leadership position includes leading a judging session or being a technical  assistant on an event with helpful comments to the gymnasts from a judging point of view. We welcome judges to bring their ipad and use Coaches Eye to assist with seeing angles, deductions and meeting the skill criteria. ALL judges are assigned if you apply by the designated deadline. It is acceptable to do one day or more. On Sunday, we will not have any judging sessions for this 2015 year. Judges are encouraged to sign up for Friday and Saturday’s only as Sunday’s are only a partial day with other activities being planned.
NEW for 2015–  On June 25, 2015, the Region 5 Administrative Committee voted that a judge must be in a leadership role for a minimum of one day at a Region 5 Training Camp to receive a Regional judging assignment.
Thank you for considering being a Region 5 Training Camp leader !
