About Formation Skydiving

Objective:  to complete as many scoring formations as possible within the working time, while correctly following the sequence for the round.

Teams: Each team has a designated videographer who captures video evidence of each competition jump.

Scoring: Judges review the video from each jump immediately after the team lands. They use electronic scoring systems to score the video while watching in real time.  

Working Time: Time starts when any member of the team leaves the aircraft. This is the amount of time they have to score points.


Draw: The sequence of formations each team has to complete. Each round has a different sequence. All teams are doing the same draw for each round.

Grip: consists of a handhold on an arm leg or foot of another jumper. As a minimum, a grip requires stationary contact.
