CHECK OUT WHAT SOME OF THE PREVIOUS YEARS' PARTICIPANTS HAVE TO SAY:
“What an awesome experience I have had this year being on a Rhythm XP player coached team! The Rhythm coaches know how to teach the skills in a fun filled environment. Our team, Accelerando left each camp much improved and confident.” Earl, SDC Accelerando, 2013
“One of the biggest advantages being on a player coach team is that you don't have to waste time and jumps trying to figure things out- you have a coach there all the time to engineer the dives and provide feedback. I have enough experience to look at video and know that I'm not doing something right, but I don't always know how to make it right. Having a coach to provide that feedback means that I can make the correction on the very next dive, rather than going through a frustrating series of trials and errors trying to get there on my own.” Gretchen, SDC Octimus Prime, 2013
“The coaches of Rhythm do an excellent job of teaching in a focused and positive way while maintaining a fun jumping environment. The skills I learned through just a few weekends with Rhythm were more than I would have learned in a couple seasons otherwise.” Jordan, SDC Tempo, 2011
“Training with and learning from Rhythm has made me a much better skydiver. Their training and tunnel camps are excellent and they are outstanding teachers who love what they do. I strongly recommend training with Rhythm if you are serious about skydiving and want to improve your flying skills and become a more knowledgeable and safer skydiver. Whether you are new to the sport or an experienced skydiver, their unique training style and uncanny ability to connect with any student or experienced skydiver ensures that your flying skills will improve. In the end you will be a better and safer skydiver, which we all know is great for the sport. Thanks Rhythm! “ Hank, SDC Tempo, 2011, SDC Accelerando, 2013
“When I did the PC program in 2012 I learned a ton! And not just about how to be a better skydiver, but about how a successful team functions in the air and on the ground. On my current 4way team three of us are PC veterans and so we're able to get the most out of each jump and training camp. Rhythm's PC program was a great investment.” Courtney, SDC Flow, 2012, SDC Octimus Prime, 2013
"If you are serious about advancing your skydiving skills, four way or otherwise, this is a fantastic program. You simply will not get this amount of learning and improvement anywhere else. The Rhythm coaches are not only excellent skydivers, they are exceptional coaches and teachers. Being a part of this program has resulted in my ability to start a 4-way team at my home DZ with three folks I met through this project. I very strongly recommend the player coach program!" Dave, SDC Fource, 2012
“The team project has been such a rewarding experience and a wonderful opportunity…Learning from an outstanding coach, training hard with great skydivers from all over the US, improving immensely on my flying skills, creating long-lasting friendships with teammates, it’s a win-win situation that I would recommend to anyone wanting to achieve both team and personal goals!” Deb, SDC Synergy, 2010, SDC Angry Birds, 2011
“From our time in the Paraclete XP tunnel, through the training dives, preparation, debriefs, etc. I have been extremely pleased with the SDC Rhythm 8-way project. The SDC Rhythm 8-way program is extremely worth the money and time spent.” Eric, SDC Synergy, 2010
