Rules can be found at www.uspa.org. On the home page, go to “USPA Members.” There you can click on “Downloads” and look for the Skydiver’s Competition Manual. (SCM) If this is your first time at the Nationals read Section 1 carefully, as well as reading the section specific to the events you are interested in.
Every competitor or alternate pays a general registration fee of $50 for facilities, banquets, shirt, etc. Videographers are considered competitors. After that, cost is entry fee per event, plus jumps. Entry fees are based on the estimated number of participants sharing costs for their event. Jump costs are based on a fuel cost of less than $3.00 per gallon. In the event that fuel rises above that, jumps will be raised in proportion. Each one dollar in extra fuel cost adds about $1.50 to the jump price. Rule changes affecting number of rounds, judges, etc. may also affect costs.

4,001 9,000 feet: $23
