Becoming a Judge

The competitive aspect of our great sport requires great judges who understand and apply the rules of their discipline in a fair, objective and consistent way.

We believe in providing the highest quality of judging at all levels to enable our performers to have a fair evaluation of their routines.

Competition rules and regulations for our disciplines are revised and updated every four years in line with the Olympic cycle, led by the Fédération Internationale de Gymnastique (FIG), and European Gymnastics in the case of TeamGym, and sometimes revisions are issued mid-cycle. Scottish Gymnastics deliver courses up to national level across disciplines.

Entry requirements and costs vary for each discipline.
