The Kids Contend

logoOn October 13th the International Bodyflight Association is sanctioning the first ever National Kids Competition. Thirteen tunnel locations across the United States are participating in this extraordinary event. Kids compete at their home tunnels, scores are tallied and compared, and in the end one team takes home the grand prize of 5 hours of tunnel time at whatever participating tunnel they choose. The team with the most overall points wins, but second place won’t be too upset with their 3 hour prize and third place wins 1 full hour. Any tie-breakers will be determined by the team that scores the highest number of points in a single round.

This year, kids will be competing in 2-way Formation Skydiving. Teams are already beginning to train and we are excited to see the kind of show they will put on. From now until October we will feature interviews of teams and individuals with their eyes on the prize. You will get to hear their stories, watch their videos, and cheer them on!
