Web dev by
Judges, please remember to update your membership information in the Judges Info section. There are many judges who are showing up as expired in their
USAG and/or NAWGJ memberships.
The updated special requirement #3 for L6 Bars is the following: One 360° Clear Circling element from Groups 3, 6 or 7. It may NOT be an element performed
with hips on the bar during or at the completion of the circle. Front / back hip circles or sole circles do not fulfill this SR.
Be aware of the Gold UB cast requirement changes. There are no cast amplitude deductions for the Gold level, so the gymnast either achieves one cast
to horizontal - and meets the Special Requirement - or she doesn't, and .5 is deducted from the Start Value.
The roundoff dismount on BB is now added as an 'A' skill.
While in some previous years a Bronze gymnast could do a chasse + leap combination to meet the dance passage requirement,
it does NOT meet the requirement now. Some gyms may fail to notice this change. Other combinations that have been seen this year that do not
meet the requirement are leap + bent knee hop (from the compulsory routine), leap + straight jump. Neither the bent knee hop nor the straight jump are "A"s on floor and are not
listed on the Bronze skills chart.
Be very aware of the front salto position. Gymnasts are not allowed to do a front pike until the Platinum level, since even at the Gold level
they are not allowed to do a B salto on floor.
The old level 6 BB mount is now listed in the code as an A skill.
If a coach actually coaches the gymnast through the routine ( for instance, says "tuck jump" to a gymnast who forgets what to do next) the chief
judge should take the deduction on this routine rather than just giving a warning.
Is it possible to connect a cartwheel and roundoff in a floor routine? Yes, this is not an impossible connection. Of course, it depends on the
foot placement and technique the gymnast demonstrates as in any connection, but many cartwheel-cartwheel or cartwheel-roundoff combinations have been
connected this season.
On Bars, a platinum gymnast can not do the swing with a half turn dismount (that is allowed at gold) since that dismount is not an

Links to the last two financial reports are now posted. Please note the dates that are covered by the spreadsheets.
(For instance, the May spreadsheet actually covers the Feb-April time period, so the complete Bronze Silver meet results are not included yet.)
New code for AAU
Judges must have an AAU membership if they are going to judge an AAU meet. The NC AAU Gymnastics website has the links for AAU membership registration.
When you register, make sure that you use WW6AC8 as the team code in order to link to the Team North Carolina league. You can submit this expense
to Terri Costa if you have available voucher credit or education account credit for reimbursement. Also, there were updates made to the AAU rules
this past December. Make sure to go to the NC AAU website to download the updates before arriving at your meet.

While not all these gyms participate in competitions, the number of gyms
which do participate is always growing. Thus, the need for more judges! If you
