The Virtual Indoor League has more casual rules than traditional 4way competition and offers two additional categories near the grass root level of 4way Formation Skydiving. Rookie A and Rookie AA allow a new tunnel flyer to join a 4way lineup as soon as the basic flying skills have been accomplished.
The integration of player coaches in the Rookie Class categories make it easier for the new flyers to learn the basics of 4way Formation Skydiving competition.

Jeff Atherton also competed with Expedition at the SkyVenture New Hampshire Indoor Fest 2013. Brian Touhey and Jeff Atherton then had a Tminus01 reunion at the Paraclete XP Indoor Championship 2013. Charly Yankee won the AA Class competition of the event with a 17.2 average.
Brian Touhey has been following the Virtual Indoor League activities with great interest for a while and eventually joined the two other groups at iFLY Orlando and iFLY Seattle with his own group. SkyVenture New Hampshire is his home tunnel and well known for facilitating and supporting 4way training and competition.

Brian Touhey also reported that the scores in the three Rookie Class categories are on a lower level to begin with for a good reason. His Rookie Class participants insisted on doing it alone and without the help of player coaches in the lineups. Congratulations for a great start at SkyVenture New Hampshire.
The New England group consisted of Brian Touhey, Jeff Atherton, Masaaki Okumura, Brandon Aaskov, Trevor Donarski, Andy Costanza, James Yates, Sam Corner, Andrew Stack, Erin Pena, Colleen Cusack and Eli Bolotin. Jeff Atherton said that the A Class scores and videos will be added soon.
