List of JO A's 

The following is a list of skills that will receive JO A credit at States, Regionals and Nationals.

If your athlete is expecting to get credit for skills not listed in the FIG Code of Points and not listed below, they must be approved via video submission on the NGJA website as a new skill submission.  Written documentation must be presented to the state chairman or regional chairman prior to the competition.  Skills that do not have writen approval prior to the state or regional championships will not be given any credit.

JO A Skills:

  • None of these skills qualify for Element Group credit
  • JO A’s will not overrule a FIG skill.  For example, a handstand momentary hold on PB, does not become a JO A with no deduction.  It would receive a FIG A with .3 deduction.
  • This document is only applicable within Region 6
  • This document will be null and void after 2018 Junior Olympic National Championships
  • This document serves as a suggestion as to what skills will get credit for a JO A at the 2018 JO Nationals, and therefore will be applied to the best of all judges ability
