Gymnastics Victoria Judging Review

As part of the Gymnastics Victoria strategic plan, 
Gymnastics Victoria commenced a review in 2016 of Judging across all Gymsports to ensure long term growth and address opportunities and barriers for people to be involved in gymnastics judging.

Since 2007 Victorian Judging Technical Membership has experienced variable rates of growth depending on the time of  year. With the increase in the number of competitions being held across Victoria it is critical to ensure a consistent growth pattern in coming years to continue to develop gymnastics.  The review resulted in 15 Recommendations that support all existing, new and prospective judges and includes specific recommendations for each Gymsport.  Gymnastics Victoria will begin developing a plan to implement each of the recommendations. Some of the recommendations have already commenced implementation, while others will be implemented in the future.
