Technical Members (accredited coaches and judges) who wish to maintain their membership need to show ongoing evidence to keep their accreditation. This practice is called Updating as outlined in Gymnastics Australia's Updating Policy.
Below you will find links to different ways you can collect updating points.
Updating can be achieved by completing approved activities that are relevant to the Gymsport or level of accreditation.
Regardless of the number of accreditations you hold, the total number of updating points you are required to complete per annum will be based on your highest level of accreditation, as follows:
Beginner – minimum of 3 updating points per annum
Intermediate, Intermediate Bronze and Advanced – minimum of 6 updating points per annum
Advanced Silver – minimum of 12 updating points per annum
FIG/High Performance (and higher) – minimum of 18 updating points per annum
More detailed information on updating points & limits can be seen in section 10 of Gymnastics Australia's Updating Policy.
Note: Judges’ Accreditations are valid for each Olympic cycle. Each new cycle, all judges who hold accreditations must attend a new course in order to maintain or extend their judging competencies.
