The excitement was all in anticipation of the launch of iFLY Perth’s excitingly NEW Junior iFLYER Club which has started this school term! Kids learn to become Pro-Flyers able to do aerial tricks and even fly with others in-formation.
The days included exhilarating demonstrations from our current Junior iFLYERs Noah, Cooper and Oxana, along with out-of-the tunnel belly flying training from our coaches and instructors, while every kid had a chance to experience reverse rain within the tunnel. Yes, Reverse rain! We also had colouring-in competitions; prize giveaways and free sausage sizzle.
The club is the first of its kind in Perth, so it wasn’t a surprise that some 800 people attended over the two days!
It was a fantastic turnout and energy was running high! iFLY Perth, iFLY Downunder (Sydney West) & iFLY Gold Coast will be sure to be running many more kids events to promote the sport of indoor skydiving as a choice sport for kids with many more events planned for the future!
Indoor skydiving combines many skills together that challenges and builds coordination, body awareness, team-building and general fitness and flexibility! The Junior iFLYER Club introduces kids to the sport with a dedicated instructor that will guide them through the skills needed to master the air all within a term timetable so they can learn after school or on weekends.
iFLY has a history of HIGH achievers that started in the club including 11-year-old Amy Watson who now competes overseas in indoor skydiving events and even set a Guinness World Record, most 360 horizontal spins in a wind tunnel in one minute (individual); holding the record with 44 completed in one minute! – Read more here.
Or 13-year-old, indoor skydiving athlete, Sarah Yates who competed in the Battle of the Blades competition in Seattle USA last year placing 4th in Junior’s Freestyle!
