  • Be a member of the USA Jump Rope.

  • Practice freestyle judging as much as possible. Watch routines on videotape or at your local team’s practices, and analyze them as if you were a judge. This will allow you to score routines quickly as well as accurately on the score sheet.
  • Attend all meetings and judges’ briefings as indicated on the tournament schedule.
  • Review this Judging Handbook and be familiar with all rules and procedures related to your assigned judging duty.
  • Arrive at your station on time and prepared for your assigned duty.
  • Wear a white shirt or an official USAJR shirt, along with navy blue pants, shorts, or skirt and athletic shoes when judging. A plain white or navy sweater or a sweater with the USAJR logo is permitted. No denim or team logos permitted!
  • Cell-phones, cameras, and similar devices may not be used while judging with the exception of speed judges using a cell phone or iPod to click speed (must be in airplane mode).
  • Be pleasant and polite at all times while judging. Be friendly with your fellow judges, but refrain from any comments or discussion while judging.
  • Be impartial. Avoid coaching or cheering for any certain competitor or competitors.
  • No judging or competitive modifications may be given to jumpers or teams based on reputation only. This includes “warning” judges at a station that a team/jumper is “really good” or “really fast,” or providing any other exception or advantage. A 4th clicker judge may be added for Nationals if requested by a coach, in writing at time of registration, for jumpers who have documented speed scores at or above the automatic qualifying scores (section 205 of the rulebook).
  • Head Judges and Floor Managers are the only judges allowed to talk to the competitors. In speed events, Judge 2 is allowed to talk to competitors about delays.
  • Do not discuss scores, concerns, judging issues, re-jumps, protests, or challenges with the coach or jumpers. Any issues should be brought to the attention of the Tournament Director immediately.
  • If you have any questions about rules or procedures, please call a certified judge trainer in your area for clarification, or contact the Competition Committee of USA Jump Rope.

Thank you and good luck!
