All active USPA judges are listed on our website. Just go to "Find A Judge" under the Judging tab and search by name, or by location and discipline to find a judge.
Any state record requires two officials to certify. One of these must be a judge rated in the discipline. For more details see SCM Chapter 3.
The USPA Open National Record is for records set in U.S. airspace that contains foreign jumpers. The U.S. National record requires that all jumpers be U.S. citizens for permanent residents.
