Note to Coaches: Please be aware that the ACA Judges' Training is designed solely for the education of individuals wishing to officiate at ACA events this season. Coaches who wish to increase their knowledge and understanding of the judging process are welcome to attend the training but please note that Q&As throughout the day will be prioritized for prospective judges only. There will be an opportunity for coach questions or queries pertaining to individual routines and rule clarifications during breaks and at the end of the training day(s).
