National outdoor championships, regular meets of the National Skydiving League and any other 4-way events were the opportunities for teams to collect real competition experiences and compare their scores with each other before attending world championships and world cups.
Eleven countries have already completed their national indoor championships this winter (in alphabetical order: Brazil, Czech Republic, Denmark, Great Britain, Finland, Netherlands, Poland, Russia, Sweden, Spain, United States), and there will be more coming before Round 1 of the FAI Indoor World Championship 2023 in April.
The NSL News has covered all the events with scores, videos and other updates, and two of the most recent events were completed in the Czech Republic, Spain and United States. The Czech teams have additional monthly meet opportunities, indoors and outdoors, together with some other countries who participate in the National Skydiving League 4-way network. They completed another 10-round competition in February, and the next one in March is coming up soon.

Then the U.S. teams followed up another week later, where Arizona Airspeed provided more evidence for their currently dominating position in the 4-way world. Arizona Airspeed in 4-way Open and XPG4 in 4-way Women will represent the United States at the indoor world championship in Slovakia.
There is arguably no doubt that Arizona Airspeed is without any serious opposition in 4-way indoor and outdoor competition at this point in time. However, there are silver and bronze medals to win in 4-way Open, and the finish within the Top 10 of the world has been a topic for the NSL News for many years. The situation in the other 4-way events (Women - Junior) is less predictable when it comes to the top spot and FAI gold medals.

The Czech 4-way Women team will probably be the top contender for the gold medals if they can return timely to the scoring and performance level of a year ago. They have been gaining momentum meet by meet this winter, knowing that the new outdoor world champions in their event, NFTO, will try to take away the top spot in 4-way Women. XPG4, NFTO and HF Cubs will post their scores for the first time on the same leaderboard and at the same location, after comparing their scores only indirectly so far.
At the same time, 4-way Open Class teams HF Flying Circus and Papea from Spain are looking back at the competition in Charleroi a year ago, where they were battling with each other within the Top 10 of the 4-way Open Class competition. Their rematch will probably create once again an exciting duel. The Czech, Spanish and U.S. teams had three different competition draws at their recent indoor events. Teams, competitors, coaches and audience have the opportunity to interpret the results accordingly.
