Five judges ensure the competition is run properly. One watches for any failures and has two flags – one white and one red to signal good jumps or no jumps. Two judges mark and measure the actual jump. One judge calls up the competitors and clears the runway, while the other judge stands between the takeoff board and landing area to watch the competitors’ feet.
