Did you know that the Golden Knights have a new approach to 8-way training and competition?
posted: Feb 14th, 2020 NSL News updates have recently come from Skydive City on a regular basis. The skydiving center on the west coast of Florida has made Formation Skydiving training and competition a priority. Results of the efforts were regular training camps of world-class teams in the winter season, and Skydive City is also hosting this year's USPA Nationals and the Shamrock Showdown. The latest visit of the NSL News came shortly after the NSL Live Talk with Qatar coaches Gary Smith and Jeremie Rollett, together with Golden Knights team captain and SDC Rhythm XP member Andrew Starr, on February 5th.

Did you know that future 4-way Women opponents posted Indoor Cloud League scores in January?
posted: Feb 13th, 2020 The Indoor Cloud League leaderboards for January are complete. It turned out to be almost a complete sweep by the Hurricane Factory. The Czech teams posted highscores for five of the six categories. Only iFLY Tampa's RRR Class lineup stole the January highscore with a 25-pointer, and iFLY Seattle tied the maximum score of 25 points for the RR Class sequence. It was a combination of the HF Cubs and three junior teams (HF Dragonflies, Rusalky, HF Invisible) who collected a total of 147 points together. Paraclete XP had two very strong teams (SDMW NEXT, XPG4) perform the two Open Class sequences... (more)
Did you know that SNE Fly Girls were the most improved team at SkyVenture New Hampshire?
posted: Feb 12th, 2020 The NSL News gave the Rookie Class thriller and the SkyVenture New Hampshire 4-way juniors of Gen Z special attention on February 2nd. The duel between Gen Z and 4 Minute Call was the closest competition at this year's SkyVenture New Hampshire Indoor Fest. The AAA Class competition at this event has usually been in the spotlight, and it was once again very competitive at the first indoor competition of the year. The scoring numbers could not keep up with the ones of the winner between 2017 and 2019, Ranch 2nd Generation. However, the three top teams were separated by only eight points this year,... (more)
Did you know that Tanay 8 will need their alternate for a little while?
posted: Feb 11th, 2020 Bad news came from Russia in January. The Tanay 8-way team was in winter training at Skydive Dubai, the place where they are preparing for this year's FAI World Championship of Formation Skydiving in August. Team member Andrey Barabash, founder and sponsor of the 8-way team, who is also the President of the Russian Skydiving Federation and host of the world meet at Skydive Tanay, broke his leg in one of the training jumps while landing his parachute. It's a very unfortunate timing - if there is anything like a fortunate timing for an injury. His Russian 8-way team has been on the way to bringing... (more)
Did you know that Just4Fun and Blue Steel have a 22.4 tie-breaker meet in March?
posted: Feb 10th, 2020 The NSL News covered the World Tunnel League competition at the Fööni wind tunnel in Helsinki with the story on 12 January 27th. It featured the quick Team X trip from Sweden to Finland, and it provided some details of the new Finnish indoor team Just4Fun.

The same story mentioned that another new Finnish team, Blue Steel, missed the FITL January meet on home turf in Helsinki and would follow up with their own scores at the Wind Games, beginning just a few days later. Blue Steel then brought... (more)
Did you know that the Czech Octopucz 8-way team started with indoor training?
posted: Feb 8th, 2020 Jan Klapka, godfather of the Formation Skydiving community in the Czech Republic, has added another activity to his own and the agenda of seven other 4-way competitors. He has put together the Octopucz 8-way team and launched the new Czech project with two indoor training camps, one in Berlin, the other one in Spain. It is an interesting timing for the new 8-way team. There is no indication yet whether Octopucz have plans to compete, either at indoor or outdoor meets, or even send a team to the FAI World Meet 2020 in Tanay, Russia. However, all team members are active competitors, and Jan Klapka... (more)
