Get your belly on! Belly skills camp.

 

This camp is designed to challenge participants and develop the necessary skills to participate in records and big ways. Join our organizers Hao and Eva for a fun filled weekend as we teach you the skills to help reach your goals! Starting with 6 ways and moving onto larger formations, participants will get to experience flying different slots and try new exits. Our goal is to make about 5 jumps per day with a goal of 15 jumps by the end of the weekend. Registration covers the cost of the videographers and includes detailed prep and debriefing for each jump. Sign up now because slots are limited!!

Andy Marcoux

Earning your coach rating can be a really fun way to take your skydiving to another level. You’ll learn more about your own skills while teaching others. You’ll learn how to be more methodical in your approach to skills and equipment, ultimately making you a safer, and better skydiver.


Once you’ve earned your USPA Coach Rating, you’ll be eligible to jump with unlicensed jumpers who’ve been cleared for self-supervised free fall. The USPA Coach Rating is the first step toward becoming a camera flier, Tandem Instructor, or AFF Instructor. Potentially, you could earn some of that jump money back on coach jumps, while letting someone else pay for your slot!

  • USPA B License
  • 100+ Jumps, verifiably logged & signed

Andy has been skydiving since 2009, but his beginnings in the sport go far beyond that. Growing up as a DZ brat he spent summers on New England drop zones in the 70’s & 80’s, long before there were tandems & AAD’s.


Outside of skydiving, Andy has a lifetime of experience instructing students in equestrian sports. That experience gives Andy a unique insight into teaching both knowledge, and coordination. Not only will you earn your Coach Rating, you’ll learn how to teach!

Scott Lazarus will be back for canopy coaching of all skill levels.

Note from Scott:

Excited to have been invited to coach again at Danielson. This year the dates are the 21st and 22nd of June. I can help with anything from before B license to advanced swooping. Also enjoy working with people coming back to the sport... Looking very forward to seeing everyone. Cost this year is $200 for the course, that covers at least 5 jumps or as many as you can safety make in a day. Significant discount for 2 days. Special staff rates just like last year too. ??
