Beginning Judges Certification (Category 3)

This is the first in a series of courses designed to educate and certify judges for the Development Program disciplines of Trampoline (Individual and Synchronized), Tumbling and Double Mini Trampoline. Upon successful completion of each discipline specific course, judges will be certified with a Category 3 rating.

Category 3 judges, who also hold the appropriate USAG membership, are permitted to judge all Development Program levels 1-Open as an execution judge for the discipline tested and as a horizontal displacement judge if certified in Trampoline. They may perform the judging roles for horizontal displacement, time-of-flight, and video for elite competition within the country.

To successfully achieve a Category 3 Judges rating in trampoline, double mini or tumbling participations must successfully complete both the Part 1 online written exam and attend a live, in person Part 2 practical exam.
