The National Judges Cup is ...

The National Judges Cup is an annual fundraising invitational to benefit the National Association of Women's Gymnastics Judges (NAWGJ). Funds raised from this competition are used to further judges' education nationally and support the annual operating budget of the National Association of Women's Gymnastics Judges
 
The National Judges Cup is the only traveling annual invitational in the country that changes city locations each year. It is the mission of NAWGJ to move this event to a different city each year to show support of the judges in each state and allow their member judges the opportunity to see gymnastics in all regions of the country.
 
The National Judges Cup is the only invitational in the country that supports a four (4) judge panel for all levels of competition. This competition sets a nationwide base score as judges representing an average of over 25 states judge together and have the opportunity to review rule interpretations and recent changes made by the national office. This event also affords judges and participants the opportunity to judge with and be judged by some of the most recognized and prestigious judges in the country.
 
The National Judges Cup features the prestigious Level 7 All Star State Team Challenge. Six member teams representing each state compete for the title of Level 7 State Team Champion. Team SoCal is the current reigning Level 7 State Team Champion
 
The National Judges Cup is always held the first weekend of January following the New Year.
 
The National Judges Cup awards more medals and awards than any other national invitational in the country as age groups are broken down further than R&P recommendations. Each participant is also recognized on the awards stand with an all-around award presented in the official awards ceremony.
