Attn. Meet Directors

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.

Remembering Jerry Spencer

The WV gymnastics community lost a very special man on Thursday – Jerry Spencer. Jerry founded the very 1st private club in WV, Glendale Gymnastics. Almost all WV gymnasts current and past, have come through his gym doors in some capacity. Jerry was a fixture in the WV gymnastics community for over 50 years. He had a special love for children that extended beyond gymnastics into his 34 year teaching career. WV Gymnastics extends our condolences to his wife Danny, sons Lance, Drew and Matt and their extended families.
