In an effort to promote Education, Service and Leadership for our judges, the Women’s Technical Committee is excited to introduce a new Category system for differentiating National and USA Brevet rated judges beginning with the 2026-2030 cycle.
The goal of this program is to acknowledge those judges who are supportive and dedicated to the sport of gymnastics and to identify, recognize, and empower our leaders for the future.
In 2026-2030, National judges’ will be made up of 4 Categories (1-4), with Category 1 requiring the most involvement, down through Category 4, requiring the least amount of involvement.
In 2026-2030, USA Brevet judges’ will be made up of 2 Categories (1-2), similarly with Category 1 requiring the most involvement.
Judges will have the opportunity to earn credits in the required areas of Education, Service, and Leadership. Credits are earned yearly and accumulated over a four (4) year cycle. Total credits earned in a cycle will determine a judge’s eligibility to apply to a corresponding Category.
All supporting documents to assist judges in the transition from the current model of a single National and USA Brevet rating to the four (4) Category system can be found in the Forms section under the 2026-2030 USA Brevet & National Judges Course information page.
