What an incredible series of achievements by our Australian Parachute Team! Committed leaders of the sport and great representatives of what our Australian skydiving community is all about — remarkable skydivers with true team spirit that help each other out.
We are certain the Performance-Based Funding spent by APF on helping APT members train for and compete in the 2022 World Skydiving Championships will have benefits for all APF members. The knowledge and expertise gained from participating in such events can be shared with other coaches and members around the country, and help progress our sport and inspire the next generation of competitors.
