    Anon How strict are judges with floor music length? (L10)

    I’m wondering how precise/strict the 1:30 time limit is for L10 floor music. Just got the cut back and the file length is 1:32, the music ends at 1:30, but there’s sort of a lingering tone that goes to 1:31. The routine itself would be finished by 1:30 but wondering if she could get dinged for...

    OT Judges Course

    It has been suggested to me a couple of times that I take the judges course. Specifically for MAG. I've thought about it a few times and am starting to get the ball rolling with it. I can't help but to notice the form and shapes of the gymnasts as they are performing their skills and my eyes...

    WAG Handstand Question for the Judges

    For the judges out there, my friend and I are coming up with unique mounts for next season and I came up with a pretty cool mount. I'll spare you all the details but basically, I stand up on one leg and go through an arabesque into a handstand. If I do a handstand out of that (not out of a...

    For Coaches Coaches/Judges food at meets - Input Requested

    I'm taking over as meet food coordinator for coaches & judges. Just wondering as coaches what foods/meals do you like or not like when attending meets. Ours is a large 3 day meet so 24+ coaches and 8+ judges at any given time. We have a loose 'menu' but trying to shake it up a little.

    For Parents Coaches curse/Judges curse?

    My ds has talked previously about what apparently is called the "coaches curse". Not sure if it is an actual thing or something he has made up. It's basically the ability to do a skill or a routine when the coach isn't paying attention, but as soon as they are watching, the athlete will tend to...

    WAG Weird full turn question for judges?

    If there’s any judges here or anyone who knows the answer to this; Our beam coach has worked like dozens of ways to do a full turn with my daughter, she settled on coupe (sp) and it’s… a work in progress. She’s happy because she’s landing them all now. BUT we noticed that her foot that is up in...

    WAG Judges : what value is a front toss layout on beam? Video enclosed

    Just a public video, not my dd. She is looking for the college value but JO would help as well - if its the same value as a regular front toss in JO, then likely same for college

    How are all of you judges feeling about meets?

    Have you been given any word on how you will be kept safe with all of the coaches and athletes, and even the other judges (!) around you? Particularly with interstate competitions? I'm wondering if you all have been told anything about how some of these big interstate meets will be run given...

    Can any coaches or judges help me with a question about Floor CRs?

    Can any coaches / judges tell me if the following floor rules mean that there should be two backwards saltos in the routine to get all the CRs or if the salto with min 360 turn counts as two CRs? It looks like there should be three tumbles in the routine to me but my daughter only has two...

    WAG FHS vault - question for judges

    Hi! My DD will do a short season of L5 before this fall and the coaches are really pushing her to vault at a higher table height. She is 8 1/2 and pretty small overall for her age but she is a pretty powerful vaulter. She competed L4 at a table height of 110cm. She moved to a 115cm right...

    WAG Question for Level 3 judges

    My daughter (level 3) did a handstand forward roll on floor where she was supposed to do the bridge kick-over. She was wondering: What is the best thing to do once that happens to end with the most points possible? Just go right into the bridge kick-over and continue as if she hadn't done the...

    WAG Judges Question...

    So lets say you have to gymnasts, one competes the bare minimum requirements but the routine is extremely clean, the other gymnast competes a harder version of the routine (front handspring layout instead of front handspring front tuck in L7 floor) she too is extremely clean. They both have 3...

    WAG level 4 question for judges

    Would any judges be willing to look at a level 4 floor routine and vault? Normally don’t ask but scores were hugely different compared to a meet several weeks ago, but routines look the same. Just trying to understand. Thanks!

    WAG Compulsory judges, help me settle an argument!

    I'm not even going to go into the back argument here, but... Compulsory judges, this is all about starting position on floor. My understanding is this: Right-handed gymnasts should start to the right of the judges table on the floor, left-handed gymnasts start to the left side of the...

    WAG L4 floor help -- Judges or coaches -- anyone willing to look?

    State meet is just around the corner, and DD is frustrated with floor scores. Anyone (judges, coaches or experienced parents) willing to take a look and share thoughts/feedback? I can PM her highest scoring and lowest scoring floor routines of the season. Thanks!

    For Parents Question on judges notes...

    Today at my DD L4 practice meet she got notes back on her events on things to work on. One of the notes said she must squat in her double flip flop. What does that mean? Is that for after the round off prior to the first flip flop? I have limited gymnastics knowledge & I didn't want to...

    WAG Food for judges at meets

    If you are a judge or work providing judges food at meets, what do you provide for them? The few people that handled this area for meets we host are no longer with the gym and I'm helping take over that area. Are there any requirements of what must be provided? (E.g. Vegetarian options, food...
