The ISR Grand Prix is an annual event for skydivers in the discipline Formation Skydiving (FS4) and Artistic Events (AE). This Year (2016) 2way Dynamic Freefly will be added for the first time as extra disciplines in the Artistic Events corner. Like all the other disciplines/categories, also here the best Dutch freefly teams will be honored by the KNVvL as National Champion Indoor Skydiving in its corresponding category. The ISR Grand Prix is always held on Saturday of the last weekend of November.
Indoor Skydiving is growing up very fast as a sport. It’s no longer a sport exclusive for professionals, but for everyone. The first time flyers get a chance to interact with the amateur and professional teams and hereby said this interaction contributes to the continuity of our beautiful sport. Also since 2014 FAI/IPC has adapted the indoor skydiving competitions as an official part of the world rankings, acknowledging the huge interest and potential from sponsors, media and participants. Many first time flyers have been infected with the virus and started to train on their next level and even forming teams. Trending nowadays are the young guns, the kid ninjas, the future….
ISR Grand Prix
Indoor Skydive Roosendaal has always put their focus on the first time flyers and the rookie teams before the professional teams. High level competitions with big prize money attract many of these professional teams, which is great to see, but for a large portion of the just starting teams this can be very intimidating. Realizing there was very little possibility for rookie teams to experience a nice officially judged competition, Roosendaal stepped up and made this possible. In 2010 we hosted the very first Indoor Skydive Roosendaal Grand Prix. A formation skydiving 4way competition over 8 rounds, all in one day. We have grown from 19 teams in the first meet to 55 teams in 2014, with participants from 8 countries.
The smooth organization and the high profile feel of the meet makes this a very unique competition. How often do we see these rookie teams competing with so little attention. We want to do this different. We still fly all 4 categories, but you will find in this particularly meet, that the bigger numbers of teams are in the rookie and single A category. We believe this helps to make the sport wider and deeper plus the interaction of recreational, amateur and professional. The team of Indoor Skydive Roosendaal is very proud to celebrate the 6th Grand Prix in 2015.
