Whenever I am at a competition, I get extremely nervous, to the point that I actually shake. It affects me most on beam, where I tend to wobble on every skill and dance, just because I am so nervous. At training I stick around 5 routines in a row, minimal wobbles, but it all falls apart at comp. I have states in a while so I am hoping someone will know a way to help. Thank you.

Like this definitely happens to me to and I think the best thing for me is when I am at practice like full on imagining I am at a meet because for me even thinking about meets makes me nervous at practice and you can work through that at the gym before you go to a meet. Another thing is not to be afraid to think about it EVERYTHING what your going to wear your warm ups everything so when you get to a competition it does not feel like anything new or intimidating.
