Load Organizers, Teams & Development Programs

Never experience a boring skydive!!! The joy of skydiving comes from jumping with your friends! We recognize that as a young jumper with limited skills, it can be a challenge to jump with other more advanced skydivers – we won’t let that happen here! Between our load organizers, teams and development programs, there’s no reason not to advance your skills and jump numbers while having a great time jumping with others!

8N2 Club

Expanding upon our popular ‘A’ License Club we have created the 8N2 Club! This year will be organized by experienced and welcoming local Zibby Alexander! Identifying a need for jumpers with 25-250 jumps to make friends, have fun, and increase their skills, the club is focused on beginner to intermediate dives. Each club ‘meeting’ will have a dedicated organizer, aiming to do 5-6 jumps per day, with flexibility for participants to join in one or join in them all. There is no registration fee, just show up and pay your jump ticket!

10 Spot

A challenge based system aimed at improving overall freefly skills. A skydiver’s myth buster!  Each month, a group of 10 flyers will be given a set of dives to engineer and successfully complete.  This team environment will be led by World Champion and DZO Rook Nelson.  Rook will challenge the group with technical jumps pushing everyone’s skill level.  A challenge might be, “Is it possible to perform 10 points without everyone taking the same grip?”   Another might be,  “Is it possible to fly a 3-way round through a 7-way round?”  Rook will look to the group to come up with challenges of there own as well.  There is NO registration for this event but you must email info@skydivechicago.com to be put on the ‘list’. To participate in 10 Spot you must be able to take docks on your head and while sit flying.
