DD will be competing Level 4 this season (January 09-May 09). Her coach says that she will move up to MDL Level A for next year. She is very excited about this because the Mason Dixon League starts their compulsories at Level A! (This is comparable to the USAG Level 5). I know it sounds confusing for those of you that aren't familiar with the MDL (it's an East Coast thing), but I like it because it is still very competitive but it is a more relaxed atmosphere and dd seems to have so much fun in this type of program. It's the best of both worlds, so to speak.
