Isn't it time to earn that first rating?

The USPA Coach Rating may be earned by jumpers with at least 100 jumps and a USPA B-licence. Coaches can teach the gerneral sections of the first jump course and train and supervise students for group skydiving skills. Coaches work under the supervision of instructors. This is a fun time and a great learning experience. The last time we did this it turned out to be a blast and produced some pretty good coaches so come take advantage of this opportunity and learn form one of the best.

Absolutely- freaking AMAZING! I had the best time ever here! The people are amazing all around. Could not have asked for a better time. Can NOT wait to come back!!!!
-- Susan

The people are all great and a joy to be around, they will educate you on the questions you may have and the setting itself is spectacular. They will make sure you have the best experience possible. I hung around all day waiting for my chance to jump and it looked like the opportunity wasn't going to come but at the last minute the skies cleared and it was the perfect setting for the perfect jump. John is an excellent instructor! I jumped with a beautiful sunset view over Washington. I can't wait to get more jumps in towards my A license! If you are on the verge of doing it, go ahead and make it a yes and take a leap of faith! This is the place you want to start your skydiving adventures.
