I was so nervous at my first show :) don't worry its totally normal, just don't let it get in the way of you doing your best. Deep breaths, give yourself plenty of extra time so you don't feel rushed. Go early to school and make sure you are well fed, rested and hydrated. Trust me, it all sounds obvious now but for me once nerves kick in I get stupid. You'll probably make silly mistakes, you may or may not pin, and you almost certainly will wish you had done better and I honestly am not saying this to discourage you. It's just the way things are, so don't put too much pressure on yourself. Just try to have fun, if you mess up laugh it off and try to do better next time. As long as you are trying your best no one will care how you did. If you really get nervous try humming to yourself. I sometimes do entire divisions singing under my breath the whole time, its super relaxing. I also mouth the things I need to remember. Between jumps I just chant to myself "heels down, chest up, thumbs up, leg, eyes etc." Just all the little things I might let slide otherwise. Its silly but it works for me. Good luck!
