Synchronization of the Competition Draw
The NSL headquarters delivers the competition draw for each meet weekend Friday evening by posting it at the NSL website and communicating it with the league and meet directors. The same competition draw will be applied at all meets on the same weekend - everywhere in the USA and also in other countries. All scores will be collected, processed and posted beginning on the Monday after a competition weekend. As in the past, teams will be able to compare the scores directly.

This is the current USPA Open/Advanced Class applying the whole IPC 2012 dive pool and rules.
The AA Class is identical with the current USPA Intermediate Class. This class is the next step for teams and competitors that have mastered the Rookie Class and the A Class. Eight additional blocks (1, 11, 13, 14, 15, 18, 20, 22) without memory and mirror image and a little longer sequence are added to the rules of the A Class.
The A Class is the next step up after learning the basics of 4-way competition in the Rookie Class. The A Class applies the following eight blocks of the IPC dive pool: 2, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, 19, 21. The sequence can be three or four formations long.
This is the class for the beginners in the sport. The events of this class are an introduction to Formation Skydiving competition at the grass roots. The rules are synchronized between all participating leagues. This will fully include the Rookie Class teams in any possible prize giving. All 16 Random Formations will be used for the exits.
The events of the NSL Playoffs conclude the regular season. Each league has the option to schedule the last meet of the regular season as the playoffs event. Teams have to attend a minimum of one NSL meet of the regular season and the NSL Playoffs to be eligible for qualification to the NSL Championship. Teams can choose any of the playoff locations. Guest teams will be welcome at all playoff events but cannot qualify for a medal slot at the NSL Championship. Each NSL Playoffs event consists of:
Qualification to the NSL Championship
League Champion Wild Cards
Each eligible league champion of any of the leagues that does not finish within the ten qualifying slots at the NSL Playoffs will still be eligible to compete at the NSL Championship. Wild Cards will also be available for teams exempted from regular qualification, if necessary, including the defending champions of each class.
League ChampionshipsThe NSL Playoffs events are scheduled for the same weekend as the last meet for most of the leagues. These leagues will determine their league champions of each competition class on the playoffs weekend, as well.
PrizesAny prizes for the NSL Playoffs will once again be given to the most improved teams. The NSL handicap system will be applied to determine the most improved teams. The team handicaps will be based on the scoring average of all meets of the regular season.
