Emily--look on the upcoming contest section, you should be able to see if there are contests near you and then if there are womens sections. Oly will help but you'll also need to work on you DL bigtime since most events require icking things up.
Some things you can do in the gym
DB farmers
any OH stuff
DL's and all the variations, from diff heights, thick bars, etc
a ton of "core" strenght is needed. but fi your doing Oly stuff your probably ahead of the game.
I would also contact your state chairperson, as they would most likely knw of any training crews near you. and it would be a good idea to read/ join www.
