However, Eliana Rodriguez and Craig Girard followed... (more)
Did you know that the vision of live coverage is still alive?
posted: May 9th, 2014 Live event coverage has always been a part of the NSL vision how Formation Skydiving competitions should be presented to the general public, in the short term and in the long term.
There have been other passionate event organizers who shared the vision. However, the necessary resources have never been available yet to present the sport the way it deserves it, with a few exceptions where skydiving competition was plugged into other larger events with larger budgets.

Did you know that the Northwest Skydiving League is back on top of the Indoor Cloud League leaderboard?
posted: May 5th, 2014 The Indoor Cloud League competition began as a duel between the Florida Skydiving League at iFLY Orlando and the Northwest Skydiving League at iFLY Seattle. Both groups continued to dominate the leaderboards while other groups joined the project month by month.
