Did you know that two Northwest A Class teams fended off DeLand 3D?
posted: Aug 19th, 2015 Last weekend's A Class competition featured the same battle between teams from the Northwest Skydiving League and Florida as in the AA Class competition.
It was an interesting draw with several overlapping sequences, which allows teams to compare their own scores with teams in the next higher category. AA and A Class teams had two identical sequences in Rounds 2 and 3, while two Rookie Class sequences in Rounds 1 and 5 were identical with the A Class.
One of the strongest Rookie Class teams in the country last year, DeLand 3D, had these two rounds to complete an 8.6 average in the team's... (more)

The Sun Path Products NSL News has covered the relationship between the indoor and outdoor world many times, and very specifically on June 25th.
The story explained how the Northwest Skydiving League teams and competitors use the iFLY Seattle facilities and the Indoor Cloud League activities with great results. The success of the NWSL indoor/outdoor combination became even measurable last weekend.

Did you know that the most experienced A Class team finished on top of last weekend's leaderboard?
posted: Jun 26th, 2015 Last weekend's A Class competition was not as clearly dominated by US teams as it was in the AA Class. The teams in the Top 4 positions competed at four different locations: Northwest (USA) - Netheravon (United Kingdom) - Florida (USA) - Tomscat (Netherlands).
The final rankings on the overall leaderboard were determined after four rounds, as well as in the AA Class, where teams in Florida were stopped after Round 4. There were several moves on the leaderboard, and GravitonZ had the biggest one up the rankings, from 6th to 3rd place.

Did you know that the league's indoor and outdoor activities in the Northwest are mutually beneficial?
posted: Jun 25th, 2015 The international teams dominated the overall AAA Class leaderboard last weekend, while the situation was the opposite in the AA Class.
Four US teams from three different leagues outscored all AA Class teams from the United Kingdom and the Netherlands. A few adjustments of the leaderboard were necessary to determine the final rankings, which are based on the total number of points after Round 4, as DeLand Flashpoint was one of the victims of the Florida summer weather pattern.
Two Midwest Skydiving League teams took the top of the leaderboard before and after the adjustments. SDC Jetstream... (more)
Did you know that NWSL teams and competitors concluded their 2014 season in a funny and creative way?

Did you know that several participants in the Northwest had their best skydiving day ever?
posted: Jun 23rd, 2014 Summer in the Northwest doesn't officially start until after July 4, so it is a very rare situation when a scheduled June meet actually happens. The last time it happened was in 2005. This year was a wonderful surprise when Northwest Skydiving League teams and competitors woke up to clear, blue skies, no fog, and pleasant temperatures. The first load was on the plane at 9am, and every team was easily able to complete six rounds, with JOES completing eight. Skydive Snohomish has two landing areas, and the one for less experienced jumpers requires a bus ride back. JOES are able to land directly at... (more)
