The Arizona Skydiving League grew out of the Southwest Skydiving League, which was launched in 2004 and then split up into the Arizona and the Southern California leagues. The Arizona Skydiving League had its most active period in 2007 and 2008 when Arizona Divewerkz, USPA Advanced Class champion of 2006, became involved and helped to launch the new 4-way league for the 2007 season.
The NSL News now has good news for the 4-way fans and all skydivers in Arizona and the Southwest area. Eliana Rodriguez and Michelle Karamon have decided to work together and re-activate the Arizona Skydiving League.
Eliana Rodriguez is back in Arizona, where she became an Arizona Airspeed member in 2001, right after she had won 4-way Women gold medals with the U.S. team Synchronicity. She followed up with Airspeed 8-way gold medals in 2004 and 4-way gold medals with Airspeed Odyssey in 2008. She is the only Formation Skydiving competitor in the history of the sport who won FAI gold medals in three different events.

The Dubai project was discontinued a few years ago, and they moved back to Arizona where they have had their old and new headquarters ever since.
Michelle Karamon recently moved from the east coast to Arizona. She has been the Inside Center for Ranch 2nd Generation since 2016, the 4-way shooting star in the United States. She continues with R2G and is also training and competing with the new Paraclete XP 8-way team that is trying to win the USPA Nationals 2019.
Eliana Rodriguez and Michelle Karamon together are bringing more experiences, skills and knowledge in Formation Skydiving competition to the Arizona Skydiving League area than the participants were ever able to enjoy in the past.
They have scheduled monthly 4-way meets at Skydive Arizona beginning in January 2019. Best of all, they will be available to coach and guide each team throughout the competitions.

The winners will get medals and 15 minutes of wind tunnel time, sponsored by Skydive Arizona. The first official ASL 4-way meet with the current FAI/IPC dive pool and the four NSL categories (AAA - AA - A - RRR) is scheduled for January 12th.
Eliana Rodriguez and Michelle Karamon will go even beyond the 4-way activities of the Arizona Skydiving League and offer other events, as well.
The affiliated Arizona Skydiving Tribe will be the "inclusive skydiving community" that Eliana Rodriguez and Michelle Karamon are planning to build in the Arizona area: "We support and encourage each other in the learning process throughout our competitions and events."
They plan to create different opportunities to develop individual skills and apply them at the different events, including the 4-way meets of the Arizona Skydiving League: "We all want to get better, so we will coach you on basic and advanced skills that also transfer to other disciplines, like cross referencing, grip discipline, flying on level, communication and much more!"
