The 2017 USPA National Skydiving Championships is just around the corner, AND – we are the host! We couldn’t be more thrilled to hold the largest skydiving event in the nation right in our own backyard. It’s an exciting time when teams from around the country come out and show their stuff, vying for the top spots. This year is also a special year as this event will determine the teams that will be invited by the national organization to represent the USA at the next World Meet! With all the excitement and commotion, we want to take a minute to thank all of the local teams training at Skydive Perris. We appreciate your support and will be in the front rows cheering you on!
