On a freefall jump, teams perform a designated formation or a sequence or series of formations and/or intermediate maneuvers (inter) drawn from the dive pool. Competition categories include 4-Way, 8-Way, 10-Way and 16-Way.
Freeflyers favor vertical freefall, either head-down, stand-up, or a sit position, as well as all the movements inbetween. Formation Freeflying involves two or more and includes lateral movement and up and down movement to work with other freeflyers.
Freestylists perform a sequence of moves for compulsory and creative points during freefall. Freestyle tends to utilize fluid, almost ballet-like movements.
On a freefall jump, teams perform a designated sequence or series of formations in a head down or upright, vertical axis.
Skydivers fly their parachutes through a prescribed course over water and land and are judged on their speed, distance and accuracy.
Freefall Style consists of competitors performing a prescribed sequence of maneuvers in freefall as correctly and as quickly as possible. In Individual Accuracy Landing and Team Accuracy, competitors aim to land on, or as closely as possible to, the center of a target.
Skydivers in a canopy formation are under open canopies, not in freefall as with other kinds of skydiving such as formation or skysurfing. Once out the door, they open their parachutes and then proceed to build different formations by linking together, there can be anywhere from two to a few dozen jumpers in one formation. They connect by putting their feet on another parachute, on the parachute lines, or on another jumper's body. Competition categories include 2-Way Team Sequential, 4-Way Team Rotation, 4-Way Team Sequential, and 8-Way Team Speed.
