Competition is our passion
Competition is deeply rooted in the SDMW culture. DZO, Megan George, competes in 4Way, 8Way, 16Way and 10Way in the Open (Professional) Division of Formation Skydiving as well as Advanced 4Way VFS. DZO, Keith George, competes in the Open Division of 4Way VFS. Their youngest son, Ryan George, competes in 2Way MFS and 4Way VFS. Their oldest son, Austin George, competes in Canopy Piloting. This DZ is passionate about growing competitive skydiving.
SDMW operates the ideal jumpships for serious competitors. Our Super Otter with 4 bladed props is fast and quiet with a huge door for optimal 4Way exits. Teams are approved to premanifest and turn back-to-back loads to help them meet their training goals. We also have a beautiful Cessna 182 that can take athletes up for a hop n’ pop with minimal load requirements. You can train on our regulation size swoop pond any day of the week! We also provide a spacious debrief area and several tv’s for reviewing videos. We have 2 mockups, posters of the VFS, FS and MFS dive pools, creepers and plenty of creeping space for all of your prep needs.
SDMW also guarantees minimum loads for weekday and weekend training to ensure teams will get all the jumps they need for a successful season.

Home to local and national competitions since 2013
SDMW has been a proud host of the Midwest Skydiving League’s regional 4-way FS competitions since 2013. We are also the host of the Midwest Canopy Piloting Association’s regional swoop league for competitive canopy pilots. We custom built our pond to USPA regulations to support the growth of CP as a discipline in the Midwest. We are also the only host dropzone for the Florida Canopy Piloting Association (FLCPA) in the Midwest area. In 2022, SDMW will proudly host, for the first time ever, the USPA Canopy Piloting Nationals. It’s an honor and a privilege to be chosen to put on this event and we look forward to serving the athletes well.
