All American Invitational

2023 brings back the All American Big Ways’ flagship event of the year, the All American Invitational!!! Year after year, we have continued to push this event and its participants to become better in every way, like building a 60-way with 40 people in cats! Every year the people, the jumps, the swag, and the activities keep getting better. You’ll never guess what we have in store for everyone this year! Come join a crew of badass skydivers and push yourself to achieve things you never thought possible!!!
Since the beginning, the mission has been to create a high-level event in which skydivers from all over the world are challenged to create intricate formations and multi-point sequential jumps.The event has continued to achieve impressive feats in formation skydiving. Each of the four days will have unique and challenging goals and jump plans, so get ready for everything!
“Tried and tested” is our motto with the exceptional organizing team. Eliana Rodriguez and Craig Girard will be joining Doug once again in 2023 to create fun, safe and challenging skydives you have never seen before! The plan for each day will be to make 5 jumps with group size changing throughout the event.
The media team will be brought to you again by Elliot Byrd of Byrd’s Eye Studio and his hand-selected staff. They will be sure to document and share all of the awesomeness to be had every day at the All American Invitational 2023. Video and stills will be provided for each jump, as well as ground shots and an incredible end-of-event video. Check out last year’s All American Invitational video!
Fantastic skydiving is just half of the fun at the All American Invitational. Your registration includes easy access to all the media from the event, dinner at the Tiki Hut Thursday and Friday night, a ticket to the Saturday night banquet, and a welcome bag filled with lots of goodies.
