At EVERY competition there is an obligation for competing clubs to provide a number of qualified judges, the number required is proportional to the number of club competitors entering. For every 3 competitors we must supply a judge/official. You do not need to be a coach to be able to judge, just be willing to represent the club. Without qualified judges, we cannot take part in trampolining competitions.
To become a Club judge, you must attend a British Gymnastics 1½ day training course (normally held over a weekend) and hold British Gymnastics membership, which Cambourne Comets Trampoline Club will happily fund if you are willing to volunteer for this role.
If judging is something you would like to know more about or you are willing to volunteer for this role then please speak to Laura or Helen.
