Regional Judging Director
Welcome to Region 2!
Region 2 is an extremely diverse community
of gymnastics enthusiasts. Region 2 includes the states of Hawaii,
Alaska, Montana, Idaho, Washington and Oregon. We have beautiful cities,
open plains, rainforest, mountainous regions and tropical paradise all
with thriving gymnastic communities. Some of our dedicated judges drive
vast distances in order to provide small communities with the
opportunity to host gymnastic competitions. In some areas our judges
must fly from island to island or to the Northern-most regions of Alaska
to provide communities with gymnastic judges. Our gymnastic judges are
passionate about keeping this beautiful sport alive and thriving in

Table Manners #1
This video presents various 'issues' that crop up at judging tables across the nation. It provides a good platform for discussion during a clinic or even during
lunch break at a meet. Produced by Region 2 NAWGJ/RJD https://youtu.be/g3Aq3Cbmz8w
Table Manners #2
This video presents a few more issues that may provide the impetus for some good discussions. We wanted to especially recommend the last clip. We often have no
contact information for each other's family or health information. It seems like a good idea to share contacts and pertinent health informaiton with each other in case of an emergency.

The Psychology of Judging by Ann Heppner
This power point offers a perspective on the subtle things that may cause scores to become skewed.
It helps us as judges to be aware of these biases so we can clear our minds and correctly use the Ladder of Inference to sort and evaluate real data. Produced by Region 2 NAWGJ/RJD
These video scripts are for the 2016 NAWGJ Library DVD. Pricilla Hickey, Brevet judge from Washington State, has scripted and scored these selected routines. Pricilla provides detailed notes
on deductions and composition. She has done an excellent job and leaves one script for you to score on each event and level as well. These are great practice and work well for clinics. The link
