Appeal for volunteer judges!

Image: Double-Mini-Trampoline-3We are currently only permitted to enter 2 gymnasts into regional competitions, and 4 gymnasts into county competitions as we have no qualified officials. We have many children in the club who would like the chance to compete, but to enable them to do this, we need parents to qualify as tumbling, DMT and trampoline judges and to be prepared to judge on competition days.

If you’re interested in qualifying as a judge, please contact Vicki at vicki@ocrasport.org.uk. Judging is very easy and we will pay for your course. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
