2017 JO Level 10 Nationals & Eastern Nationals Judge Selection
2017 JO Level 10 Nationals & Eastern National Judges & Alternates



J416: Level 9 Composition is an online video course. The goal of this course is to train judges and coaches to identify compositional requirements for Level 9 Uneven Bars, Balance Beam and Floor Exercise and to apply deductions correctly. Starting with a review of the compositional considerations, the course then presents theoretical routines (in symbols) to review the appropriate deductions, and then 6-8 routine videos are followed by symbols and deductions.
Once the course is complete, Judges are able to print a one-time/one-hour of CPE (Continuing Professional Education) credit.

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, 2016 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.
Reminder –  On June 15, 2016, 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 !
