Benefits of NAWGJ Membership 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 the NAWGJ include:

  • Quality
    NAWGJ provides those gymnastics officials who have met Active Status requirements, been actively judging at the level at which they have been assigned, and who are current members of USAG and NAWGJ. NAWGJ assures the Meet Director that each judge assigned has fulfilled requirements which include attendance of recognized clinics, verification of practice judging experience with a higher rated official, and active judging experience. The host club can assume that the officials are familiar with the rules and regulations, which govern the sport of gymnastics, which will in turn maintain the quality of competition.

  • Objectivity
    NAWGJ strives for objective, impartial judging by communicating with the Meet Director and respective USAG personnel to assign the most qualified judges. A rotational system is used whenever possible based upon geographics, USAG Criteria for the Assignment, and specific needs of the Meet Director.

  • Professional Standards
    NAWGJ sets standards for ethical behavior, personal appearance and job performance. It is the goal of NAWGJ to train and educate a body of gymnastics officials who are held accountable for their actions in this regard.

  • Save Time and Money
    NAWGJ saves time and money for the Meet Director and/or host club by taking care of all assigning needs, such as the mailing of contracts, long distance phone calls, arranging possible car pools and securing last minute replacements.
