Judge Training

MEPA is proud to offer a new and wonderful judge training package this year that supports your growth over the season across the Color Guard, Percussion, and Winds divisions.

Our judge training program this year will be a combination of resources, practice, and feedback to ensure you receive the information and practical experience you need to be successful as a judge for the MEPA circuit. This virtual training is offered to you at a one-time cost starting at $75 and will include the following:

  • -Virtual webinars to introduce judging for the MEPA circuit and the state of MEPA adjudication throughout the season;
  • -Supplemental materials and resources tailored to MEPA adjudication;
  • -Reviews and coaching (virtual and onsite).


Trial Judging

  • -Attend all MEPA shows during the 2023 season;
  • -Run tapes/commentary for practice and shadow rostered judges during shows for at least one contest**;
  • -Consistent feedback and touchpoints to monitor progress.

**Option available where available based on gym capacity and circuit staffing**
