Get Into Skydiving 1 – Women in Skydiving
A lot of what we see and hear about skydiving, on social media and YouTube, features men – it would be easy to think they dominate the sport. Well, to be honest, this is true to a degree.
But we have a strong (and growing) group of women in the sport, competing, holding their own and inspiring other women (and men!) to pursue their dreams too. The number of female students – and instructors – is increasing every year.
In fact, at Skydive Oz, we have an almost 50/50 split between male and female staff. It’s unfortunate that we even have this stat! But ensuring diversity is a key goal for us and we’re proud to have such a balanced team.
Every new skydiver has a story to tell. A few years back, the APF asked three women to tell their stories. We’d like to share them with you. Maybe they’ll resonate with you. Maybe they’ll inspire you too.
