Good Luck!

Keep in mind that you are not really competing against 250 gymnasts. First of all, you are going to be separated into age groups. More importantly, you are competing for yourself -- to do the best you can. If you do your best, or close to it, you will always be happy with yourself.

My dd scored an all-around in the 20s in her first meet, which you will find is not that great, but she had a great time and stuck with the sport. Next month, she will be representing the United States at the World Maccabiah Games.

Have fun!!!

Best of luck! My only goal for my first meet was to have fun. It turns out I also did pretty well too! Remember the judges are there to help you improve, not to make you nervous. My best advice is have fun. Best of luck I look foward to hearing how you did :)

i am guessing you are either a level 4 or 5. yes, your first comp. may be the most nerve wrecking, but you just don't have to think about the scores, judging, or placing. it is all about how you feel about the comp. afterward. hey, i just finished my level 6 year, (going into seven) and i am STILL nervous about competitions!! it is perfectly normal to feel nervous!! good luck!!!
