EVENT UPDATE:

Paraclete XP is expanding it’s upcoming Indoor World Championships to include a brand new test event for Intermediate 4 way VFS.  This test event will also be included at the 2018 US Nationals, held at Chicagoland Skydiving Center, so now is the time to start preparing!

The event will consist of 6 rounds, 3-4 points per round, and all flyers will only be head down.   Teams will enter the flight chamber, get on their heads, build a round, and your time will start when you break the round and move to the first point.  You’ll be judged on how many points you can score in 35 seconds.

The Dive Pool will be all head down points, including Randoms A, B, E, J L, and Blocks 1, 2, 3, 7, 8, 12, 13, 14, 21, 22.  Although Random N and Block 15 are all head down points, they are not included in this draw.

On Friday, Jason Russell from SDC Core will be at the tunnel to provide free coaching to any VFS team, at any level.  He can help you assign slots, understand the dive pool, and get you started with the right information at the beginning.  If you’ve already been flying, he can push you further in your understanding of engineering and execution.  Book your tunnel time now to make sure you don’t miss out on this opportunity!  If you can’t get any time on Friday, bring your video from flying in your home tunnel, and Jason can watch that with you to debrief what you’ve already done.

If you would like to fly, but don’t have a full team, please contact Jason Russell, at mjasonrussell@gmail.com.  He’ll try to get you paired up with others who would like to compete.

Several teams have already registered.  Get in on it!

  • February 24 - 25, 2018

The entire staff is extraordinarily professional and gracious. They are extremely safety conscious while at the same time giving everyone as much freedom as they can safely manage. A rare combination. While we (adults) were there, our instructor also suited up and trained a 2-year-old boy and a three-year-old girl.
