$500,000 covers each NAWGJ member - ONLY while we are at a meet which has been assigned by an elected NAWGJ assigner. USAG has a million dollar coverage per occurance. Ours is $500k per person.

If you accept a critiquing situation and let our assigner know when and where you will be, you can be covered. Please make sure you let the assigner know in writing.


2015-2016 Rules & Policies (New USAGym policy - no hardcopies will be available to the general membership.)
TIP: open the R&P in Noteshelf. Turn on the wrist guard and then you will be able to go into the page finder and highlight and make notes on any page of the R&P. This makes it very easy to find pages and items - especially since you can use the many color highlighters. (You can find tips on how to use Noteshelf on Digital Judging Tips)

USA Gymnastics How to Guide for Becoming a Gymnastics Judge


** Joe Rantz, the book The Boys in the Boat and WA coach Jen Huffman:
Anyone who has read the book The Boys in the Boat about the 1936 Olympic Team Gold Medal Rowing Team from the University of Washington, will know that Joe Rantz was number 7 in the 8 man boat. It is a true story of the team and in particular Joe's amazing story.

Click here to read more about Joe, Jen and Gymnastics connection - and see photos

Here is the neat history connection about Joe and gymnastics:
Joe Rantz was on the gymnastics team at Roosevelt High School. He later went on to help the UW win a gold medal in Berlin in the 1936 OIympics. His granddaughter, Jen Huffman coached at Northshore Gymnastics in Woodinville, and has recently started to coach again. Jen put together a scrapbook of her amazing grandfather which became an important part of telling the story of the rowing team.

Jen commented on Joe's gymnastics: "that was what ultimately started him on the path to rowing and Olympic gold... if Al Ulbrickson hadn't come by and given him a business card while he was on the bars in the gym, who knows if he ever would have found the sport?"
