USPA Coach Course in Nor. Cal, April 25th-27th Can't Post

SkyDance Skydiving will be host a USPA Coach Course on April 25th,26th,27th.

A "Coach" is the first of three instructional ratings available through the USPA. It's a great way to get involved at your dropzone and help up-and-coming student skydivers learn the skills they need to have fun and be safe. Basic requirements to become a Coach include a C license (or equivalent), 100 jumps, and a desire to work with new skydivers. A Coach may conduct training in the non-method specific portions of a skydiving ground school, conduct group freefall skills training and jumps with students, make linked exits with students during group freefall skills jumps.
