Training at Avon Park, FL is ideal, due to the weather, the relative
isolation to training distractions, and the proximity to their coach, Solly
Williams, who has been instrumental in bringing the technical aspect of 4-way
up to par.
The team had to deal with some bad weather so far, both rain and
high winds, but they were still able to get in some great training by making
use of the Orlando wind tunnel. The tunnel is smaller than the team’s home
tunnel, Paraclete XP, and this smaller size forces them to leave out many of
the formations, but it still allows for good training.
The team was also able to pick up a few extra jumps by training on Saturday morning to make up
for the jumps missed due to the weather. So far this week, the weather has
been great and the Team is on schedule, doing up to 14 jumps per day, and
making leaps and bounds in their progress.
The first outdoor competition is looming less than a month away and the Team feels confident that their
performance will exhibit the training that they’ve completed, and set a great tone for the rest of the year.
