USAIGC Officials Free Clinics
Clinician: USAIGC/IAIGC Technical Director Mary Bakke. Paul Spadaro, President USAIGC/IAIGC.
The USAIGC/IAIGC strongly believes in a partnership between our USAIGC Coaches and USAIGC/NAWGJ Officials. The USAIGC/IAIGC Conducts Free Rule & Policy Clinics with both our Coaches & Officials together. The USAIGC believes this type of educational experience leads to a better understanding of our Rules and Policies and a positive effect on the consistency of scoring. It is our USAIGC/IAIGC Officials job to judge each gymnasts performance based on skill requirements and execution. Inflated Scores hurt the overall competitive program.
The Names of Officials who pass our USAIGC/IAIGC Judging Exam are posted onto our USAIGC-IAIGC Judging Pool Page on our website. To judge a USAIGC/IAIGC Competition an Officials MUST attend one free Coaching & Officials Clinic anywhere in the USA or Internationally. All recertifications are due 2018 or 2019 (depending on when you recertified) last years ratings were good for 2 years.....however if you choose to test in 2018 your expiration will be good for 4 years upon passing the assessment likewise if the assessment is not passed because of the nature of the new rules and options then the 2019 expiation date is negated until the retest is completed and passed..... moving forward each judge must attend a clinic every 2 years and test every 4 years. a mimumum of a level 8 optional rating is required in order to judge up through GOLD level and a level 10 or above in order to judge Platinum & Premier.
International, Regional and State Championship Assignments of Officials must be approved by our Technical Director. USAIGC Competition Directors may hire any official listed below on our Judging Pool, from any State to judge any sanctioned Competition EXCEPT New York State South where our Technical Director assigns all officials.
