Rookiefest 2015

September 19-20, 2015

General Info

This is the Nationals for beginning skydivers!  All jumpers who graduated from ANY drop zone in either 2014 or 2015 are welcome to participate in this 3-way scramble style competition.  Teams change each round based on a random draw, but will always include one experienced ‘coach’ (members from SDC Rhythm, SDC Core, Rook Nelson and more!).  Scores will be judged by an officially rated judge and prizes go to the top three individuals!  The winner will take home a DropZone Trophy that will give the DZ bragging rights they produce the best Students. The current first place skydiver is SDC’s AFP graduate, Erin Kotlarczyk.  Will you be the next?!
