Block Party

#jyroathletes Back
Name:Block Party


The team was pieced together by Dan Smith (ex-Team Focus) as he saw potential in the flying ability of James, Nathan and Jonno (no longer a member), and recognized that all three would fly well as a team. Dan connected the 3 and then invited Ben to join the others for a fly in the tunnel one evening. After a few evenings of flying, Dan recommended making this official and for a team, with the goal of competing in the 2018 indoor nationals. Due to outside commitments, the team invited Nathan’s brother to step into the team as Jonno is starting a family. Ben’s career as a skydiving coach, has really started to take flight so he has opted to take a step back, and thus we have invited Danielle (Doni) into the team. Doni is a full-time tunnel instructor and current HU world record holder. Wanting to step away from VFS to focus on canopy flying after the 2022 Nationals Doni Stepped down from the team. Luke, who was flying with another team, was given the invitation to come and train with us, and since May 2022 it’s only been an upward journey.
