This is the "Nationals" for beginning skydivers! All rookie skydivers from any dropzone are welcome to participate in this 3-way scrambles style competition. Teams change each round based on a random draw, but will always include one experienced ‘coach’ (members from SDC Rhythm XP, SDC Core, Rook Nelson and more!). Scores will be judged by an officially rated judge and prizes are awarded to the top three individuals. The winner will take home a Rookiefest Trophy that will give the DZ bragging rights that they produce the best students. We invite jumpers from all dropzones to participate. At the end of the first day join us for a brief seminar on topics that cover gear, canopy, exits, safety, competitive skydiving, formation skydiving and more! In the evening come to our famous Tiki bar to enjoy dinner and drinks.
