New to contests

Hey guys! I’ve been throwing for a couple years, and I’ve been wanting to go and participate in some contests… But watching the people throw is a little intimidating!! They are so good!! But my question was, should I focus and develop my freestyle, or should I start off with ladder contests?! Thanks in advance!!!

Maybe hit a couple of contests for the ladder. It will help build your ability to yoyo in front of a crowd. Overcoming that is a big thing for a lot of people.

Funny thing. I’m in the same boat as you.

I signed up for my first contest in the sport ladder. Best of luck.

Thanks guys!

I have found that I do better on a freestyle. Doing tricks on demand has not always been my strong suite.

We have this intermediate division for every contest at my place. My way of overcoming stage fright? Stand in the middle of a mall and start yoyoing. :smiley:
