New Olympic Cycle Judge Upskilling

With the postponed Tokyo Olympics now complete, a new Olympic cycle is about to begin. This brings about changes to the Code of Points (CoP) for all competitive Gymsports. Gymnastics Australia are working with the relevant National Commissions to plan for any required upskilling for current judges on the new CoP.

The National Commissions are also planning to update the current judge course content with the new CoP information. Your State/Territory Association will be advised in due course when the updated course will become available for those judges wishing to upgrade their accreditation or complete a judge accreditation course for the first time.

The following information is now available for the details and timelines for current judges to complete the required upskilling.

For more information on this CoP transition plan for judges, please contact the Education Team at Gymnastics Australia ([email protected]).
