Judging Pathway

Gymnastics Australia
Judging Accreditation Framework

The national Judging framework works similarly to the national coaching framework with the levels of accreditation being the same.

Judges begin their journey at the Beginner then progress through the levels of accreditation. The Australian National Judging framework is modeled on the FIG (International Gymnastics Federation) accreditation system centered around high-performance athletes. This means that by progressing through the Gymnastics Australia Judging accreditation pathway, you are on the pathway that will lead to a FIG judging accreditation.

One key difference between the judging and coaching frameworks is that even at a beginner level, judges specialise in a chosen gymsport. Each level of accreditation allows judges to judge higher levels of competition within their chosen gymsport. The levels that judges can judge varies between gymsports.

The table below outlines all of the accreditations available in each gymsport.

Beginner Judging Accreditation

If you are considering becoming a judge in a particular gymsport please read the information below.

Becoming a judge is an incredibly rewarding experience, and is a great way to engage with the gymnastics community. There are many opportunities that judging can offer from judging at local invitational competitions all the way through to international level competitions. The judging pathway is specific to each Gymsport - judges will have to select a specific Gymsport to become accredited in from the beginning. 

Click through the slider below to see what's involved with each beginner judging accreditation as well as the outcomes of each accreditation.

In some cases, your pre-existing Gymnastics experience can allow you to bypass the beginners accreditation and complete the Intermediate level accreditation as your first judging accreditation. This is done on a case-by-case basis, if you would like to enquire, please email
