      Hi Heather,
      Some will depend on what techniques you are using when. New range is messy range until you are able to perform some movement with it.
      These types of things you want to do after working out.

      Have you taken a look at the VMC Workout section with pre/post workout mobilizations?
      What are your goals with doing mobility work pre workout/ pre comp?
      You may do it at home before you leave or once you are at the competition area.

      Some mobility work directly before a comp/workout isn’t contraindicated. As Kaitlyn mentioned, new range can be a little messy, so end range isometric work (contract relax stuff) paired with some warm-up exercises specific to the range you are working on and specific to the workout/comp you are doing would be fine. Just don’t spend more than 5-10 minutes messing around and save deep tissue stuff for post.
