Nationals UPDATE - NEW DATES

After listening to all your feedback and speaking with several of you, we're happy to announce the updated dates for Nationals later this year: Friday Dec 2nd - Saturday Dec 3rd, 2022.

Primarily due to the Project 19 scheduling conflict which we had missed, BISA are happy to support those who will be attending this long-standing event. And although dates for 2023 Nationals are yet to be set, we do anticipate a November time frame accordingly.

BISA would like to thank everyone for their valuable input and we're happy to be partnering again with iFLY Basingstoke to welcome you all in December!

Why two nationals in one year you ask?
- Good question! We couldn't get away without an event early this year as we needed an official selection event for the World Cup in Charleroi (https://www.fai.org/isc-charleroi2020). We would also like to experiment with a new date convention for indoor nationals, to be more at the end of the year, and we didn't want you to have to wait until 2023.

Why in November you ask?
- Good question! Here are our main thoughts:

1. Historical UK indoor selections in March/April have always been too late for World level competitions, typically also held in April. For the past 5 years that's meant we've had slightly smaller delegations than we might have had with more notice. This has been a particular problem in artistic and junior categories. And we have to think of our next generation competitors just as much, right!

2. We have a lot of great talent in the UK and there's great competition at the top. We want to make sure we're always encouraging that competition and sending our best to World events. That means not leaving too long between selection and competitions. We feel one year or more is too long. We hope the primary impact of this is that more teams have to push as hard as possible right up until the last moment, just like in other sports. And that helps bring up the level across the whole of the UK, not just in one team that was selected far in advance.

We appreciate there are lots of nuances here and there could be further arguments for and against. We'd love to hear what you think and we're open to further experimentation in future years if needed.

With love,
Your BISA team!

Afternoon all,

The final rounds from the British Indoor Skydiving Nationals have now been judged and iFly is in the process of sending out the scores to the team captains. However, in the meantime, here they are!

Well done again to everyone who took part! What a great few days! 😁🥇🥈🥉🌪
