NSL-TV is now following up with several more meet videos of Czech teams at the same event, including HF Flying Circus, the national team in 4-way Open, who will compete for the Czech Republic at the FAI Indoor World Meet, together with the HF Junior Cubs.
An earlier story on March 1st explained that the Czech delegation had to withdrew the national team in 4-way Women, HF Chicks, from the indoor world meet, after a new FAI/IPC rule does not allow 4-way junior competitors to compete in two different categories at the same event.
Two of the HF Chicks members are still 4-way juniors (Adela Vesela and Sabina Cioleková) and were prepared to compete with both teams, together with their former HF Cubs team mate Tereza Zívalová and HF Chicks senior competitor Eva Turkova. The plans for the indoor world meet had to be changed, while Adela Vesela and Sabina Cioleková are still competing with both teams at the WTL meets in the Czech Republic. The new videos also feature the ten rounds of the HF Chicks.

HF Bad Boys member and Czech 4-way Godfather Jan Klapka began player-coaching the M Team when his own team was slowing down with training and competition. The Bad Boys have attended only two indoor meets in 2019, after a long gap since April 2018.
The M Team has benefited from Jan Klapka's extra time and mastered the March draw with the new 14.6 team record. The M Team lineup includes Mirek Slánský who was Jan Klapka's team mate back in 2005.
The M Team started without Jan Klapka in the Rookie Class indoor competition of November 2015 with a 1.8 average and went through A and AA before entering the AAA Class world with the beginning of the 2018/2019 indoor season.
Jan Klapka encouraged the team to make the final step and brought his own broad 4-way AAA Class experiences into the new category for the M Team. They have not missed a meet since November 2018 and are ready to tackle the 15-average level in the upcoming indoor meets.

The NSL News mentioned earlier that Jan Klapka has moved all of his current 4-way Junior teams into the AA Class competition to get them ready for FAI/IPC events in the near future, while he is preparing a new generation of 4-way fliers for the Rookie and A categories. The future national team in 4-way Junior, HF Flying Rebels, are in their first year of AA Class competition and are very close to the 20-average level.
The HF Dragonflies even skipped the A Class and stepped up from Rookie Class competition until April 2018 to AA in November last year. The all-female junior lineup is still keeping up with the same progression that the Flying Rebels are showing.
Then there are the HF Chameleons with the youngest lineup, who started in the A Class in November 2017 and would not even need a 14-foot flying chamber to perform the AA Class dive pool. They left the 10-average level behind this month...
