One of the teams in training at the Rhythm camp caught the NSL News attention with their T-shirts and the team name. SDC Rhebellion XP are not making their affiliation with SDC Rhythm XP a secret. In fact, they are proudly promoting themselves as a Rhythm Project Team.
Three team members (Aga Horoszko, Kelsey Strock, Greg Bush) had signed up for the indoor training camp, and they explained during a new NSL Live Talk conversation what it takes to be a Rhythm Project Team. Coach Steve Lefkowitz was filling the 4th slot, as the missing team member, Eric Bambach, was not available for the January camp at Paraclete XP.
Aga Horoszko, Kelsey Strock and Greg Bush used the opportunity of the Rhythm camp to work on their individual skills with 1-on-1 training, as well as collecting more 4-way experiences with player-coach Steve Lefkowitz in the lineup.
The team members know each other from events of the Indoor Cloud League and the Midwest Skydiving League, where they attended meets with other teams. In fact, Aga Horoszko, Kelsey Strock and Eric Bambach joined forces with player-coach Chris Haslam for the ICL Midwest team on the leaderboards for October and November. Greg Bush had his own earlier 4-way experiences at several events of Paraclete XP's Indoor Cloud League team.
They were already in training as SDC Rhebellion XP when they participated at the ICL events, after forming the team at the beginning of last year. Unfortunately, the 2020 season did not offer the usual activities due to the corona virus pandemic and its implications. The complete lineup did not have any opportunities to start with their new 4-way team's competition career.
This will change by the end of the month when the complete lineup will go back to Paraclete XP and post their first scores at the indoor championship. They will also train in Chicago this month before the next trip to Raeford.
Eric Brambach was one of the original Jetstream Tango members, the currently longest-standing team in the Midwest. Jetstream Tango was formed in 2009, and Eric Brambach trained and competed with the team until 2015. Then he joined AAA Class team SDC Swift, where he trained and competed together with former XPG4 member Irina Meshcheryakova for two years.
He continued with CSC Phrasing in 2018 and Paragon in 2019 before the corona crisis break in 2020. However, he met his future SDC Rhebellion XP team mates at the indoor events, first only as supporter and coach. Aga Horoszko, Kelsey Strock and Greg Bush said that they melted over time and finally decided to launch the new team project together under the Rhythm umbrella.
The Rhebellion 3-way had some stories to tell of their first phase in the 4-way world, and it will become more serious at the team's first competition at the end of the month. The NSL News will follow up with live coverage from the event site.
