Special Shout Out to all USA State Team Captains who started this journey with IJA to create state teams to compete in nationals to make this system work. You guys rock!

IJA admires the determination of all State Team Members!  Best of Luck to everyone.  May the Best Team Win!

Thank you IJA Judges for implementing our scoring and ranking system to qualify competitors by skill level and not wins to

help us set standards in the competition arena! 

Thanks you! From our IJAHearts .......You are already our super stars. 

 

ABOUT IJA HISTORY  DID YOU KNOW ?  

Vivian and the late John Nash, IJA Co-founders believed competitors should not have to choose a level. The competition system should evaluate, score and place competitors in the same skill levels to create the most fair competition ring. The system should also have a method for competitors to move up in competition levels determined by skill and not wins.
