Men’s Artistic Elementary Judging Course – Postponed

The Wellington Men’s Artistic Elementary Judging Course has been postponed for 2017 due to the low number or registrations (1 person enrolled). 2014 – 2017 Elementary Judges can still keep their qualification by having their qualification signed off by a senior judge. In the Central region that is Gavin Snowsill or Kevina Ward.

Gymnastics NZ will host a 2018 Elementary Judging course which will allow clubs time to introduce new judges into the cycle.
