New Online Judges Course J416 Available

J416: Level 9 Composition is an online video course. The goal of this course is to train judges and coaches to identify compositional requirements for Level 9 Uneven Bars, Balance Beam and Floor Exercise and to apply deductions correctly. Starting with a review of the compositional considerations, the course then presents theoretical routines (in symbols) to review the appropriate deductions, and then 6-8 routine videos are followed by symbols and deductions.

Once the course is complete, Judges are able to print a one-time/one-hour of CPE (Continuing Professional Education) credit.
