2021 NCAA Judges Challenge Registration, Rules & Results

To All NGJA Members,

Get ready for the 5th annual NCAA Judges Challenge!!!

The 2021 NCAA Judges Challenge starts Tuesday, 23 November!!!  The Judges Challenge is the best way to improve your knowledge of the 2022-2024 Paris Code of Points and the 2021-2022 NCAA Modifications and the application of their rules.  By working with a group of judges you can discuss how rules are applied.  Then, when the panel publishes its analysis, you can agree, disagree, talk about the differences and ultimately your judging knowledge will improve! In addition, you can practice your shorthand and talk about the differences in the Junior Program.

Registration will close on November 22. Therefore, form your team now and play to win NGJA apparel. Here is what you can do now to prepare:

•       Call, text or email your judging friends and form your team now
•       Each team must have 2 – 4 members and a team name
•       The top 5 winning teams will all win NGJA embroidered polo shirts
•       All routines will be judged using the new 2022-2024 COP with NCAA modifications
•       Sharpen your judging skills and share your knowledge with your fellow judges

Good luck to you and your team !!!

Butch Zunich
