Judging and Scoring

Shasta Judges

Parents and athletes (16 years and up) can volunteer to become judges. Judging courses, led by Georgina Nerpio, are offered through GBC, with the costs reimbursed by Shasta when you pass. This is an excellent way to learn more about our sport, contribute to Shasta’s ongoing success, as well as earn a few dollars in honoraria. We have several judges who can practice with you in the gym if you want to become a judge.

The 2017–2020 FIG code of points, and Gymnastics Canada (GCG) 2017 Competition Regulations are used to guide judging and scoring of trampoline and double-mini.

Individual Trampoline

There are nine judges on a panel:
           The Chair – signals athletes to start; initiates time of flight (T) recorder; records degree of difficulty (DD); records any penalties (P)
           Six execution judges – four judges give scores (E) for execution of skills; two judges record horizontal displacement (H)
           Two DD judges – judges write down each skill of the routine in FIG shorthand; record any penalties (P)

The score for a routine is calculated using this formula:

Score = E + H+ D + T – P

  • Execution (E) is out of 20: four execution judges each give the routine a score out of 10, lowest and highest score dropped and middle scores are added together
  • Horizontal displacement (H) is out of 10: two judges record scores out of 10 and the two scores are averaged
  • Difficulty (D) is the total difficulty score for the routine: two DD judges record D for the routine and the Chair of the Judges Panel makes the call if there are discrepancies
  • Time of flight (T) is time in the air; measured electronically (to 3 decimal places)
  • Penalties (P) is the total of the penalty scores for each penalty incurred: penalties may be given by the Chair of the Judges Panel or the DD judges

Scoring: horizontal displacement zones

The zone score is deducted from 10 if a foot, or the hips (e.g., on a seat drop) land in the zone, for each of the 10 skills in a routine.
