2015-2016 Rules & Policies (New USAGym policy - no hardcopies will be available to the general membership.)
TIP: open the R&P in Noteshelf. Turn on the wrist guard and then you will be able to go into the page finder and highlight and make notes on any page of the R&P. This makes it very easy to find pages and items - especially since you can use the many color highlighters. (You can find tips on how to use Noteshelf on Digital Judging Tips)


2015 Season -WA - Level 2 - One judge panel is acceptable, but must be a rated official. Level 5's do not need to go to sectionals to qualify to State.
