It takes many volunteer judges/officals to run any boulder or difficulty competition whether it be boulder, difficulty. Speed events also require officals but no as many. Sanctioned competitions can not happen these amazing volunteer. The role of judges and officials is to ensure events are run according to the IFSC rules
/ SCBC rules
and is judged fairly and consistantly from event to event. Thus creating a fair, well run and fun invironment for our atheltes to compete and develop. You do not need a lot of knowledge to start down the judges path and join our create climbing volunteer community. There is a lot of support and training along the way as you develop as a judge or offical and is a great way to get front row seats to the action.
