    Usually for strongman competitions they don't have many catagories(such as age/weight/etc.).
    On most accounts, there is not enough competitors to have all of the classifications.

    Just do a google for Strongman + texas.

    Check the Diesel Power and Anvil forums. They should be able to help you out. There are actually quite a few that will have a teen division, but I don't know if they are anywhere close to where you live.
    A child does not learn to squat from the top down. In other words, he does not suddenly make a conscious decision one day to squat. Actually, he is squatting one day and make the conscious decision to stand. Squatting precedes standing in the developmental sequence. This is the way a child's brain learns to use the body as the child develops movement patterns. Therefore, a child is probably crawling, rocks back into a squatting position with the back completely relaxed and the hips completely flexed, and stands when he has enough hip strength. This approach makes a lot of sense and can be applied to relearning the deep squat movement if it is lost. -Gray Cook
