– Level 6 to 7 – 32 AA
– Level 7 to 8 – 32 AA
– Level 8 to 9 – 34 AA

Please remember to submit judges requests to Alison as soon as possible. Make sure to include the meet, location, and days. Along with the information, don’t forget to mail the assigning fee ($3/judge) to: WV NAWGJ, 1146 Shawnee Drive, Buckhannon, WV 26201
Make sure on your request you include your need for judges from other states if necessary. Although their availability is not guaranteed, Alison will contact their SJD. Since we rely on our neighboring states, it is imperative we follow all the proper steps. Most states have already started their assigning process, so it is important this information is submitted as soon as possible to get it on the calendar and start finding judges.
In addition, please take the time to read over the R&P when it is released for new changes.
