JUDGES TRAINING COURSE
Welcome to our Judges Training. We take great pride in having highly trained and skilled judges. Thank you for doing your part to become the best judge (or athlete or coach) you can be.
This course is organized in a digital, online, and on demand format. The Judges Training Course Outline is below. Please note that this is a living website. All the required information is already available. However, we will continue to add more content to this course as it is created.
When you feel ready you may:
* Take the final exam multiple choice test
* Take the final exam practical exam (video test)
For the video test, please watch the video only once and judge in real time (without going back and rewatching). This is because this is how it will be in a real competition. You owe it to yourself and the athletes to be able to judge in real time. If you do not pass, you may go back and study and then you will be provided with an additional practical exam to take. New judges will need to in addition schedule a live proctored video test (through zoom) to be able to judge live competitions.
Good luck and drop in the Facebook group with any questions.
