Did You Know...

... that the NSL now applies the ICL/WTL competition format for 4-way outdoor meets?

posted Jun 14th, 2020 - The first scores after the long corona virus break came from the most recent Indoor Cloud League event in the Czech Republic, as the NSL News reported on June 4th. The Hurricane Factory has been back in operation for a few weeks, and the Czech 4-way teams generated the first indoor scores and videos.

The first outdoor scores are also coming from an event of the National Skydiving League network. It was the Southern California Skydiving League that made the first step for a comeback of Formation Skydiving competition. Josh Hall, Arizona Airspeed 4-way world champion of 2012 and Elsinore Elevate player-coach, hosted the meet this weekend at Skydive Elsinore.

Josh Hall was also competing with his own home team, silver medalist in the Advanced Class competition at the USPA Nationals 2019. It was not the complete Elevate lineup on Saturday. Skydive Elsinore's event coordinator Mary SantAngelo replaced Zack Winoker for the SCSL season opener. Main Street Jambalaya managed to finish ahead by two points in this AAA Class battle and won the meet in Round 5.

Perrisites of 2004
The visitors from Perris won the AA Class competition. The new Perrisites adopted a team name that was on several SCSL leaderboards in 2004. In fact, the Perrisites of 2004 attended six meets that year, including the USPA Nationals. However, this weekend's lineup did not include any team members of the Perrisites 16 years ago.

The SCSL teams will not be alone on the new leaderboard, if any other meets will take place in June. The restart of 4-way competition within the NSL Network will offer a different format to make it as easy as possible for teams to adapt to the situation and conditions of the corona virus crisis.

Skydiving centers and windtunnels may still have restrictions for their operation after the restart, and the participation could face limitations. For many years, the format of the National Skydiving League events has already been based on sharing the leaderboards between participating leagues whenever meets are scheduled for the same weekend.

This format has allowed the teams to apply the same competition draw and share the same leaderboards while competing at different locations.

The National Skydiving League then introduced a new and different format when the Indoor Cloud League was launched. There was a set of six sequences in six different categories (AAA - AA - A - RRR - RR - R) that served as the monthly homework.

World Tunnel League of the NSL Network
The same format was adopted when the National Skydiving League introduced the World Tunnel League. This time, it was a 10-round meet in four different categories (AAA - AA - A - RRR) with a new competition draw each month. All hosts and participating teams have been scheduling their own events and could still share the same leaderboard.

The current situation and conditions of the corona virus crisis invited the same extension of the ICL/WTL format to outdoor competition. Hosts and teams now have the opportunity to schedule their meet days independently to match their potential restrictions or limitations.

The application of the ICL/WTL format for 4-way outdoor competition actually invited another step. There is no reason why the monthly indoor competition draw could not be used for outdoor meets, as well. The dive pools are identical in all four categories, and it will be very interesting to compare the indoor and outdoor scores. The indoor/outdoor combination has been applied previously at the NSL Championship events. However, there will be two different monthly leaderboards, one only for the indoor meets, the other one with the outdoor scores and the same competition draw.
