Judges’ Cup

WHY JUDGES’ CUP?
Our goal is to provide valuable written and verbal feedback to help local clubs achieve the best for their compulsory and Xcel athletes. We know that a positive and successful season for the gymnasts turns into a successful season for coaches, judges, and parents alike.

The funds we raise by volunteering our time at Judges’ Cup directly supports the NAWGJ Minnesota members through summer clinics, testing, rule books, new judge mentoring, board operations, and maintaining our website.
The Minnesota judging community depends on these funds to provide our judges resources to continue performing their jobs at the highest level. Note that Minnesota NAWGJ will also use this weekend to provide training for judges who have recently passed their judging exam.
Finally, our first-ever Judges Cup will serve as an opportunity for judges throughout the state to kick off the season with a fun, and productive, weekend of friendship and professional camaraderie.

MN NAWGJ (National Association for Women’s Gymnastic Judges) is excited to announce our very first MN JUDGES CUP that includes an unbeatable opportunity that will give each club an exclusive advantage to successfully kickoff the season! With the new Compulsory routines, MN NAWGJ is excited to provide live feedback on skills and beam and floor choreography in a fun meet setting!
Each athlete will receive an individual corrections card from the judges AND coaches will receive a list of corrections for their club for each level!
