With the help of Back in Motion this year I plan to work my way up to doing clean programs, triple jumps and other more complex skills to gain more points in the coming competitions. I wish to meet the new qualifications to compete International Senior (out of NZ and Australia). I plan to attend the Queenstown NZIFSA Camp and to compete at Dunedin Club Championships, Queenstown Champs, North Island Championships, Hollins Trophy, Dunedin Spring Trophy and NZ Nationals.
