Did you know that NWSL teams and competitors concluded their 2014 season in a funny and creative way?
posted: Sep 19th, 2014 The Northwest Skydiving League held its final meet of the season on September 13, with unusually warm weather for this time of year in the Northwest. The teams got a great start, with the first load taking off shortly after 9am. All teams competed at Skydive Snohomish, as Synergy, which normally competes at Skydive Kapowsin, was at the USPA Nationals. Bill Selig served as judge for the meet.
The friendly competition between the A Class teams, JOES and Fun Sponge, continued. The two teams are coached respectively by Dave and Deb Correia. JOES took an early lead, topping Fun Sponge by 3 points... (more)
Did you know that several participants in the Northwest had their best skydiving day ever?
posted: Jun 23rd, 2014 Summer in the Northwest doesn't officially start until after July 4, so it is a very rare situation when a scheduled June meet actually happens. The last time it happened was in 2005. This year was a wonderful surprise when Northwest Skydiving League teams and competitors woke up to clear, blue skies, no fog, and pleasant temperatures. The first load was on the plane at 9am, and every team was easily able to complete six rounds, with JOES completing eight. Skydive Snohomish has two landing areas, and the one for less experienced jumpers requires a bus ride back. JOES are able to land directly at... (more)
Did you know that the Indoor Cloud League leaderboard is changing quickly and frequently?
posted: Jun 2nd, 2014 Things change quickly on the Indoor Cloud League leaderboard, especially at the time of the turn of the month.
The Florida Skydiving League competitors just went back to iFLY Orlando on May 28th to improve their May scores for the last time, and they took the current top position for the six May sequences.

Did you know that NWSL team Synergy followed up with impressive outdoor scores?
posted: Sep 10th, 2013 Team Synergy of the Northwest Skydiving League caught the Sun Path Products NSL News attention several times this year, and impressive news keep coming from the Northwest Skydiving League.
The last time was after the Indoor Cloud League scores for the month of August were complete, and Synergy had posted a very impressive 29-pointer for the AA Class sequence. Deb Correia reported after the the last indoor session at iFLY Seattle that she had NWSL team Synergy posting scores for her group and 11 participants on August 28, including three who were brandnew to the Indoor Cloud League event: Guy...

Did you know that the Joes are not sloppy any longer?
posted: Jul 31st, 2013 The A Class was the only category last weekend that had a complete 6-round overall leaderboard. Teams of the Northwest Skydiving League and in the Czech Republic took advantage of a faster competition draw, which included three sequences with only random formations, and posted new record averages for the year.
Even Czech team Zoonte, 4-time winner on previous A Class overall leaderboards, was finally tired of the 11.0 average and posted a season high 12.5 average last weekend. It was Zoonte's 5th outdoor competition of the 2013 season with the 5th top position on the overall leaderboard.
Did you know that any completed meet is a good meet in the Northwest?
posted: Jul 9th, 2013 Three smaller meets last weekend combined for the latest overall leaderboard. Only the A Class competition brought teams from different locations (Northwest, Canada) together this time. Two teams from Virginia were alone in the AA Class, and the Yeah Team had the Rookie Class for themselves.
However, the A Class competition featured an interesting mix of teams from the Northwest Skydiving League and Canada. The competition between Fun Sponge and BLD alone could not have been any more exciting, as both teams finished tied in 2nd place after six rounds and only a few points behind Canada's A Class...
