About the National Judges Cup:
The National Judges Cup is an annual fundraising invitational to benefit the National Association of Women’s Gymnastics Judges (NAWGJ). Funds raised from this competition are used to further judges’ education nationally and support the annual operating budget of the National Association of Women’s Gymnastics Judges.
The National Judges Cup is the longest-running traveling annual invitational in the country that changes city locations each year. It is the mission of NAWGJ to move this event to a different city each year to show support of the judges in each state and allow their member judges the opportunity to see gymnastics in all regions of the country.
The National Judges Cup is the only invitational in the country that supports a four (4) judge panel for all levels of competition. This competition sets a nationwide base score as judges representing an average of over 28 states judge together and have the opportunity to review rule interpretations and recent changes made by the national office. This event also affords judges and participants the opportunity to judge with and be judged by some of the most recognized and prestigious judges in the country.
The National Judges Cup features the prestigious Patty J. Shipman Level 7 State Team Challenge. Six member teams representing each state compete for the title of Patty J. Shipman Level 7 State Team Champion.
The National Judges Cup awards more medals and awards than any other national invitational in the country as age groups are broken down further than R&P recommendations. Each participant is also recognized on the awards stand with an all-around award presented in the official awards ceremony.
