The two "farm teams", Cheetahs and Lions, were training with their coaches Gary Smith and Luc Verstrepen at Skydive City in Zephyrhills, while the Qatar Tigers had their own training camp with new coach Andy Grauwels at Jump Florida in Lake Wales. The Tigers were not alone in Lake Wales. In fact, the majority of competitors from Qatar were at the same place for training, including the military CISM events, Accuracy and Style, and Canopy Relative Work. The Qatar Tigers were on a...

News Article Did you know that Gary Smith and Luc Verstrepen had a real NSL Coaches Corner this time?
posted: Feb 25th, 2023 It was not too long ago when the NSL News was asking Qatar coaches Gary Smith and Luc Verstrepen for their review and evaluation of the FAI Outdoor World Championship 2022, primarily related to the teams of the Qatar delegation. Qatar Falcons won their second consecutive FAI 8-way silver medals, and the Qatar Tigers added a set of bronze medals in 4-way Open, also consecutively after the 3rd place at the FAI Tanay Mondial.

News Article Did you know that the official world record for a single round is still Airspeed's 59-pointer of 2017?
posted: Feb 23rd, 2023 The competition draw of the Paraclete XP Indoor Championship 2023 included a Super Sequence for the 4-way AAA Class teams in Round 4 (M,B,G,E,F) that was randomly drawn for the national indoor championships of the United States. The scores had no significant impact on the 4-way Open Class leaderboard, as most of the teams performed according to their ranking positions. Only XPG4 and Greenlight scored significantly higher than teams ahead of them in the rankings. The scores for a Super Sequence can have a much stronger impact, and the situation at the German Outdoor Nationals 2021 is probably... (more)

posted: Feb 22nd, 2023 The Paraclete XP Indoor Championship 2023 included once again the qualification of the U.S. teams for the Formation Skydiving delegation to the next FAI/ISC event in 2024, which will be a world cup.

The FAI/ISC indoor events do not include 8-way competition at this point in time, even though the sanctioning organization of Formation Skydiving competition has been working on dive pools and rules for 8-way teams, as the NSL News reported...

News Article Did you know that the Qatar delegation is facing a very large obstacle on the way to the top?
posted: Feb 22nd, 2023 The coverage of the 4-way and 8-way teams from Qatar has increased in the past years, as the country on the Arabian Peninsula has consistently participated in international Formation Skydiving competition events and moved up from participation to becoming a powerhouse in the two most traditional events (4-way Open, 8-way Open). There has been no leaderboard at FAI World Championships of Formation Skydiving since 2018 without a team from Qatar in a medal position. Last year's world meet in Eloy featured the two national teams both on the FAI podium for the first time, Tigers in 4-way (3rd) and... (more)
