The AAA Class teams had to master Block 18 (Zircon - Zircon) for the first time in the 12-foot flying chambers of iFLY Seattle, iFLY Orlando and SkyVenture New Hampshire, and the 6-point sequence also brought Block 6 to the AAA Class lineups.
The teams used different techniques to execute Block 18. The Northwest Skydiving League competitors applied a horizontal maneuver, while Ari Perelman and his assistant coaches went vertical at iFLY Orlando, as well as Brian Touhey's AAA Class lineup at SkyVenture New Hampshire. The AAA Class was one of only two categories where the Florida Skydiving League was able to outscore the Northwest in the May competition.

Deb Correia, David Zhang, Carolyn Chow and Michael Biederman lost two points to Ari Perelman's AAA Class lineup and won back the same number of points in the AA Class where Florida had a different lineup. The Northwest group then had the strongest performances in the A Class (Steve Platt, Denis Pershakov, Laura Brown, Carolyn Chow) and the Rookie AAA Class (Andrey Ulanov, Michael Simpson, Carolyn Chow, Michael Biederman) and combined for a 9-point advantage.
Florida won the Rookie AA Class and gave away only one point in the Rookie A Class, but it was not enough to make up for the losses in the other two categories.

The lineups are flexible, and the organizers may put them together according to common sense, based on experiences and skills. Player coaches are defined by a 13+ average in the AAA Class at any outdoor meet or a 17+ average at any tunnel meet. Participants have to move up into the next category after scoring a 20-pointer or higher twice in the same category.
