Southwest Skydiving League Inaugural meet at Skydive Arizona

The Southwest Skydiving League launches its inaugural meet this weekend at Skydive Arizona in Eloy, AZ.

The League provides a new competition arena for all Formation Skydiving Teams throughout the Southwestern region. The commencement of the League's first competition this weekend has been greeted with much excitement. For the first time seasoned competitors will have an established competition base from which to improve their skills. Even more exciting is the opportunity the League provides to start up Teams and individuals. On site coaches and a handicap system will ensure everyone has an opportunity to win. All local teams are expected to turn up for the competition this weekend and will feature representation from current World Championship Team ARIZONA AIRSPEED.

The SOUTHWEST SKYDIVING LEAGUE forms part of the larger organization the NATIONAL SKYDIVING LEAGUE, where winners from regional competitions continue through to a Nationally based competition. This new format will soon prove to be the competition format of the future and result in the selection of the National Team chosen to represent the USA at World Championship Competitions. With Skydiving being on the verge of breaking into the Olympic Roster, the new League system is ready to deliver the necessary infrastructure to develop and support the growth of Formation Skydiving. Everyone is welcome to participate and ample provision is made for spectators, who would like to view some of the finest Skydiving available in the world today. The competition begins Saturday 8:30AM, with the competition draw and briefing starting at 6:30 PM on Friday March 24 at Skydive Arizona.
