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.
You can never practice your emergency procedures too much. EJECT (Experienced Jumper Emergency Cutaway Training) is a monthly review course for all experienced jumpers to get together and go over emergency procedures. Get hands on and go over all the procedures in the hanging harness. Experience cutting away your own rig, bring your rig and we can set it up for you. One of Skydive Chicago’s S&TAs or instructors will be helping you go over the procedures and answer any questions that may arise. Don’t let Safety Day be the only day you practice.
Otter weekend with a costume contest, LO's for all disciplines.
