Benefits for Meet Directors
For Meet Directors, there are many advantages of assignment of judges by NAWGJ. NAWGJ is pleased to be of service to organizations in need of contracting gymnastics officials for gymnastics competitions throughout the United States. Our network of volunteer individuals work many hours assigning meets on a local, state, regional, and national level. Advantages of contracting officials through NAWGJ include:
NAWGJ provides gymnastics officials who have met Continuing Professional Education (CPE) requirements, have been actively judging at the level at which they have been assigned, and who are current members of NAWGJ and USA Gymnastics.
NAWGJ strives for objective, impartial judging by communicating with the Meet Director and respective USAG personnel to assign the most qualified judges.
