USPA Judges

Of all the various progression paths available within our sport, judging is one that slips past many people’s attention. Yet, judging is an opportunity to be involved in a part of the sport that is reaching higher and setting new standards. More information about the USPA Judging Program can be found in Chapter 2 of the Skydivers Competition Manual.

 The road to judging begins when a USPA member completes a Regional Judge Training Course. These courses are listed on our Judge Rating Course page. Additionally, some judge examiners may offer one-on-one courses, or other creative methods to train members in the art of judging.

If you are interested in training as a judge, but don’t see a course planned, please e-mail USPA’s Competition Department at There is a constantly updated list of interested members and we pass this information on to judge examiners regularly.
