2019 USIS National Skydiving Championships
Bronze Medal for X-Force in 4-Way VFS Open!
The 2019 US Indoor Skydiving Open National Championships were held at iFly Virginia Beach on January 11th – 13th. Arizona X-Force attended its first indoor competition with its current line up established early last year. Some of the same teams competed at last year's USPA Skydiving Nationals: SDC Core, Army Golden Knights, SDMW Chemtrails, and Collective Pitch.
Arizona X-Force had a strong showing with two new team bests: its highest indoor average of 26.1 points over 10 rounds, and single highest scoring round of 46 points in 35 seconds.
The team's next major competitions will be the USPA Skydiving Nationals in Reaford, NC at the end of September, immediately followed by the FAI Skydiving World Cup in Eloy, AZ in early October, which the team qualified for at last year's nationals.
