My coach is encouraging me to participate in adult competitions. I would have to do so at the gold level because of the ISI tests I passed as a kid. So that means that by December 31 of this year I'd have to pass both my USFSA Adult Gold Moves and Freestyle. I don't know if I can do that, but that's another story. Competition would be in April, 2004 and I would be in the Level III category, as I turn 46 in May of this year.
I'm considering driving up to Ann Arbor, MI this April to see the Adult Nationals in action and scope them out.
I'm looking for any information from anyone who competes in adult competitions--what's it like, how do you fit it in with your "real" life, how tough are these competitions, etc. etc. I don't even know what questions to ask, so anything you want to share with me, I'm all ears!!!
Thanks in advance.
