How do you score vault routines?

Well this depends strictly upon each vault. You will first need to obtain your license to judge from USAG. You will then salute the gymnast, signifying that you are ready to watch the vault.

Also, the gymnast must stick the landing as well. You will learn about all the decutions to make as you are trained to become a judge.
