This is the first part in a two-part article about your first competition. Part 2 can be found here: What to Expect at a Freestyle Scooter Competition
This coming weekend, we'll be going to Sammamish, WA to compete at the Subway Games. Over the last 15th months, we've taken my scooter kid to 8 competitions in Oregon, Washington, California, and Arizona. It took a few events to feel comfortable, but now we know what to expect. However, the first few experiences were pretty nerve-wracking for both Paxton and my wife and I.
A little preparation can really impact what kind of experience you and your scooter kid will have at a competition. Every competition will be different, and being flexible is key, but by having an idea of what to expect, you can help prepare your scooter kid to do his best and have as much fun as possible.
