The AXIS Expansion Project takes jumpers who are fairly new to the sport, or to formation skydiving, and teaches the basic formations of 4-way and 8-way in a comfortable, consistent and fun learning environment that involves tunnel and jump training. Then we finish it off at the end of the year by learning to apply these skills in a competition environment.
I've never done 4-way or 8-way before!
I don't think I'm good enough!
If you are thinking this thought, or something like it, stop right there!
The intention of this team/project is get jumpers of similar experience level and teach you all this stuff. We go over how to build the basic formations, individual and team flight, and exits, as well as track off and canopy traffic when jumping with groups. You will learn how to make training plans and learn how to execute jumps so that your weekend jumping will improve as well.
Did we mention this is supposed to be wickedly fun and awesome?
Well, it is. We guarantee it!
Jumping with the same people is a great way to begin improving our individual flight skills, as well as building consistency in order to track our own individual progress. It can get quite frustrating when all you want to do is a 4-way, but then it grows to an 11-way. This is to help eliminate those pesky weekend jumping tendencies ;)

Why Do People Skydive?

We start out with some beginning 4-way groups, an AXIS instructor will be jumping with you in the formation as well as coaching. We have a videographer in order to maximize training. We learn how to properly prep and brief dives, as well as properly debrief them. Once the 4-way groups are more consistent and a little more knowledgeable, then we can combine the groups for an 8-way team. The vibe would be low-key, but still goal and performance oriented.
