Did You Know...... that four Czech team still have a perfect record of 2013/14 indoor scoring progression?
January indoor competition at the Skydive Arena
The winter season in the western hemisphere keeps teams and competitors naturally either in hibernation or limits them to visits at warmer places for winter training camps. That does not count any longer for the teams who are within reasonable travel distance to one of the many wind tunnels.
Teams in the Czech Republic have enjoyed a consistent indoor competition schedule for the winter season since 2011, when Czech Republic Skydiving League director Jan Klapka launched the indoor league in October at the Sportflight Skydive Arena in Prague. He has been running one competition per month throughout the Czech winter ever since, and the January 2014 meet took place last week.
Clean progression record: Soft4way
Impact (13.2 - 14.3 - 14.4) is the best Czech 4way team in the A Class and did the same in the most competitive category of the Czech Republic indoor league. Last not least, Rookie Class team Hoofs.cz (7.9 - 9.2 - 9.3) also maintained a perfectly clean scoring record so far.
The Czech national 4way team, Bad Boyz, attended the competition despite a missing member of the starting lineup. Center Outside Honza Lukavec was slightly injured, and alternate Jaroslav Smitka competed together with Jan Klapka, Vaclav Prokes and Marian Jeziak.
Awards for the best Czech ICL point collectors
Jan Klapka keeps track of each team's contribution of ICL points, and the Skydive Arena honored the best point collectors for the Czech total number of ICL points last year. Bad Boyz (AAA) collected a total of 144 points for the Czech Republic in 2013. Best of Relative (71) and Sky Vengeance (47) finished in 2nd and 3rd place.
A total of 18 Czech teams competed for Jan Klapka's Czech group at the Skydive Arena last year and collected a total of 482 ICL points. The best Czech total score was 130 points for the six December sequences. The January numbers for the Skydive Arena will be posted later this week.
