Request Judges

Let NAWGJ assign your judges!

Letting us assign your meet is the quickest and easiest way to find quality judges.

We want to remind you that requests for assigning are due by October 1. This means you must have entered your meet in GYMJAS and paid by that date, if you want MO NAWGJ to assign your meet. 

 

Step 1: Enter in GYMJAS

Submit your meet in GYMJAS under the Meet Director Portal. This is also where you will see contracts once your meet has been assigned.

Step 2: Send Payment

You must pay $3 per judge for your meet to be assigned. We accept electronic payments through Zelle, which is offered through most banks or now through the Zelle app. (How does Zelle work?) Use the following name and email.

Name: MO NAWGJ
Email: breadumbacher@gmail.com

If you prefer to pay by check, make it out to “MO NAWGJ and mail it to Brea Dumbacher at: 3608 W. Grace St. Apt 2, Chicago IL, 60618.

We’d prefer you use Zelle if possible, but if you have trouble or need to mail a check, email Brea Dumbacher for help.

Working with Assigners

If MO NAWGJ assigns your meet, it will be given to one of our assigners. This is a volunteer position taken on by some of our judges. Here are a few key things to know about the process.

  • Request the right number: When you request judges, you’ll tell us how many you need. If this number changes for any of the sessions (ex: you decide to use single panels) please tell your assigner right away. It puts the assigner in a difficult place to send someone a contract, then tell them they aren’t needed. The sooner we know, the better.
  • Budget for travel: Assigners do their best to keep costs down by assigning local judges when possible. We often don’t have enough judges to cover all of our meets, so you should expect to pay some non-local judges to travel in.
