posted: Nov 15th, 2014 The Sun Path Products NSL News reported on 12 November 2014 that the Bad Boys would attend their 12th 4-way competition this weekend, with a good chance to take a top position at the FAI World Cup of Indoor Skydiving 2014.
It's not only a top position, the Czech national 4-way team is holding the 1st place in the Open Class after Round 8 and will most likely win the gold medals.
The SKYLEAGUE.COM leaderboard shows the Bad Boys only in 2nd place after combining the AAA Class teams of the 4-way Open and 4-way Women categories.... (more)
Did you know that iFLY Orlando added 11 points to the Indoor Cloud League total?
posted: Nov 14th, 2014 The November competition for the top spot of the Indoor Cloud League leaderboard continues while two of the Czech teams (Bad Boys, HF Chicks) compete at the FAI World Cup of Indoor Skydiving 2014 in Austin, Texas.

Did you know that Julien Guiho is the best swooping Formation Skydiving competitor this year?
posted: Nov 13th, 2014 The 5th FAI World Canopy Piloting Championships 2014 were recently held at Skydive City in Zephyrhills, Florida. The Sun Path Products NSL News covers almost exclusively Formation Skydiving competition and events, and the swooping meet does not really fit into the SKYLEAGUE.COM territory.
However, it would not be the first time at all that Canopy Piloting and Formation Skydiving competition have something in common, and the connection comes with the athletes. Former 4-way world champions Shannon Pilcher, Ian Bobo and Jonathan Tagle (DeLand Fire - 2006) made the news here and there when they... (more)

Did you know that the Golden Knights finished the 2014 season on the world's top level in 4-way Women?
posted: Nov 11th, 2014 The duel between France and the USA for gold medals in 4-way Women has been covered by the Sun Path Products NSL News ever since the current Golden Knights lineup came together for the 2011 season.
There has been a lot of drama in those battles for the top spot, and the most famous one was probably at the World Cup 2013 when the Deep Blue Defenders and the Golden Knights were still tied after a jump-off round and had to go through the rules book to break the tie.
The latest battle took place at the FAI... (more)
Did you know that Formation Skydiving competition has a new world order?
posted: Nov 10th, 2014 The Formation Skydiving competition world has a new order. That's how the previous Turning Points column began. However, the main topic was not the athletic part of this year's World Championships. That's coming now, and then I will shut up with the world meet thoughts fora little while.
The preview of the world meet in Prostejov in the August edition of Blue Skies Mag was headlined "4-Way History in Jeopardy." Well, that's actually an oxymoron. History can never be in jeopardy, as it already happened and has become a fact. However, fact is now the historic world order in 4-way competition has... (more)
