Athletes will qualify for the US National Team by videoing their event at any AMJRF sanctioned competition and submitting that video to be re-judged by a certified judge panel. Athletes may only submit ONE video per event. Athletes qualify for the US National Team by event. The US National Team will be chosen based on the results of the re-judging. This option for qualification was the top choice of a survey completed by the membership.
Must be an AMJRF member to submit videos for certification.
Routines are re-judged using the IJRU rules.
Basic guidelines have been established to ensure each athlete has a fair chance of qualifying for the US National Team regardless of the sanctioned tournament they record their event at.
The following guidelines must be followed when submitting a routine:
Failure to adhere to these guidelines may result in a video submission not being eligible for re-judging for qualification.
Video submissions are required for ALL eligible events an athlete wishes to qualify for. See the list of eligible events below:
