Skydiving Takes Sports to the Extreme This Fall:
Fly Guys, Girls Go for the Gold at 2009 U.S. Parachute Association National Skydiving Championships – October 12-25
America’s ultimate adrenaline sport will command the skies over Texas during the 2009 United States Parachute Association (USPA) National Skydiving Championships on October 12-25 at Skydive Spaceland outside of Houston.
Over 500 of the country’s finest, fastest, most fearless skydivers will flock to the Lone Star State to push their aerial skills to the limit and compete for gold, silver and bronze medals in six spectacular skydiving disciplines: Formation Skydiving, Artistic Events (which include radical Freeflying and Freestyle), Canopy Piloting (popularly known as “Swooping”), Freefall Style and Accuracy Landing (the “Classics”), Canopy Formation and Vertical Formation Skydiving.
Skydive Spaceland, located on a modern 130-acre airpark in Rosharon, Texas (30 minutes south of Houston), will host USPA’s National Skydiving Championships – considered one of the largest annual adrenaline-pumping displays of parachuting proficiency in the country.
The championships are free and open to the public from sunrise to sunset each day. Sports fans can relax on bleachers to catch all the action happening high above the drop zone, as well as in the landing area where hundreds of skydivers will swoop swiftly along the ground.
Spectators are invited to hang with America’s star skydivers, feel the rush of competition firsthand and discover drop zone culture at its coolest as the pros practice choreographed jumps during their ground training.
In addition to public viewing areas, there will also be displays of aircraft and skydiving gear, a kids play area, barbecue stand and various other vendors.
The Schedule of Events/competitions includes (subject to change based on weather and flying conditions):
October 12-15: 4-way Formation Skydiving
October 14-17: 8-way Formation Skydiving
October 15-18: Vertical Formation Skydiving
October 16-18: 16-way Formation Skydiving
October 16-19: Artistic Events
October 17-18: 10-way Formation Skydiving
October 18-25: Canopy Formation
October 19-24: Freefall Style and Accuracy Landing
October 21-24: Canopy Piloting
