So when I started taking lessons, another woman in my class and I decided we needed a goal to work towards. Our coach told us there was an ISI competition locally this summer, so we decided we were going to compete in it. We've been having so much fun we decided to look into more competitions. However, there's not a lot of ISI competitions to choose from. So I looked and saw there are quite a few USFSA basic skills competitions around here. However, my coach has always done ISI at lower levels, so she's not as familiar with the basic skills structure (and she doesn't really like how their levels are set up).
So I thought I would see if any of you are more familiar with it. I have lots of questions really. Are adults typically allowed in basic skills, or are they expected to do USFSA's adult track? How is testing levels done? Is it like informal testing we have had for ISI (ie my coach did mine in a lesson)? Is it frowned upon to do both ISI and USFSA competitions? I'm just looking for options for us, and I know my coach would really be game for anything we want to do. Thanks for any and all information!
