I'm 14 and a level 1. The oldest girls in level one are 12 and there are a few of them plus a few 10-11 year olds. I feel so old. Girls a grade above me are level 8s. I started late again thought I did start when I was five originally. I've gone through the rec to pre-team to team as fast as possible which is good which means I'm advancing fast. But I'll be probably the oldest girl competing. Also many girls my age are in beginner rec classes so that makes me feel better. But level 1 is the old level 2. And it comes after Pre-Team. Its harder than JO levels.
