February 27th, Rain Date February 28th
This is the Nationals for beginning skydivers! All jumpers who graduated from ANY drop zone in either 2014, 2015, or 2016 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 XP and SDC Core, Sebastian Jump In and Body Flight).
Again, this day is dedicated to beginning jumpers who just submitted their A-License or have up to 200 jumps. This event is focused on a fun and safe way to continue your education and interact with jumpers from other DZs.
Each jump has a coach and an outside videographer, essentially providing 1:1 coaching. The goal is to complete 4 jumps in a day and learn from the highly experienced and talented individuals. You will also receive a flash drive to collect the videos of your jump!
Scores will be judged and prizes go to the top three individuals! The winner will take home a DropZone Trophy that will give the DZ they are from bragging rights they produce the best students. Will you be next?
Registration Fee: $70
(What does registration cover? Registration Fee helps pay for the slots of the coach and the videographer for each of your jumps, who will share their expert knowledge and help to enhance the skills skills and safety of new jumpers in the sport.

Ellis Bourbonnais from Spread the Love is co-hosting the 2 camps with TJ Landgren; who will be visiting Sebastian for four days of wing suit and canopy fun. The first two days will be focused on 2 levels of flocking; one level for wingsuiters wishing to improve/fine-tune their flocking skills and the other level for wingsuiters wishing to learn flocking skills. The second two days will be focused on how to set up XRW for the first time. This includes teaching the canopy pilot a proper flight plan, going over how the wing suit pilots should exit, how to approach a canopy, and most importantly where the danger zones are.
Jump Tickets are $25.50 and the camp goal will be 5 - 6 jumps per day

Head Down Big Way Skills Camp
March 25 - 27
Head Down Big Way Skills Camp with SDC Core Members. Organizers: Jason Russell, Stephanie Strange and Jake Jensen
If you're one of the large number of people who talked to us about training for the Vertical World Record before the actual tryout camps, this is for you. Skydive Sebastian/Skydive Chicago have arranged for us to have 2 otters for this event.
We'll be working in smaller groups initially, building skills with emphasis on safe arrivals and departures. Saturday/Sunday working toward larger groups with multiple aircraft, changing slots, and changing aircraft formations.
We intend to have a learning environment without all the stress of the tryout camps. Safety remains our first goal!
We need to say from the beginning that if you're not ready for 2 plane shots, we will continue to teach/jump with you all weekend, but everyone's safety takes precedence.
It's really rare to have a chance to approach the base from a different plane. If you've got your sights set on a 200-way, don't miss this opportunity! GET ON THAT RECORD!! Camp is limited to 40 slots.
Registration is $50/day, you can register for one, two or all three days. You will have to register no later than Feb 15.
Jumps will be to 14,000 feet, regular jump ticket prices. Plan on 5-6 jumps per day.
