Week 1 Routine Evaluations - Click here for routine evaluations

 

Hello Everyone,

  

Prior to posting the evaluations for the routines in Week 1 of the NCAA Judges Challenge, I'd like to offer a few comments. Once the first evaluations are posted, there will be considerable discussion regarding the posted evaluations.  I'd like to provide a guidance to help everyone deal with any differences of opinion that may arise from this process.

  1. Every routine will have an evaluation with a description of the routine, value parts, groups, execution deductions and comments. You will find the evaluations on the NCAA page at the top of last week’s routine links.
  2. Please review each evaluation to see how the NCAA panel evaluated each routine – this will answer most of your questions and provide you with a blueprint for how the routines will be judged in the next 3 weeks.
  3. Since I am sure everyone will not agree with the evaluations of each routine, I would like to remind you that this is like judging on the international floor.   You will not know the judges on your panel and you have no idea how they will apply deductions. In some cases, you may have a correct score and get thrown out high or low. If you want to win the game, understand what the panel is doing (following the COP) and calibrate your judging to move in line with the panel while applying the COP deductions.
  4. Like a competition, there will be routines that you will see differently.  Since we cannot have a judge’s conference, please accept the score as you would in a meet. 
  5. I encourage everyone discuss the routines and scores. Learning only occurs when you participate, listen, and challenge your perspectives.  You don't have to agree.
  6. Please do not email me to complain about the scores as all scores are final!

                              

The routines for week 2 of the NCAA Judges Challenge will be available on the NGJA website tomorrow morning!
