- flyers limited to one class per discipline. Flyers can however enter in multiple classes as long as they are not in  the same discipline and are within their age group. Maximum of two classes per flyer.

-The rule set of each discipline does not explicitly state how a team/flyer should appropriately choose the class to compete in. The disicplines below have been divided according to age to help create a more fair competition. No one above the age stated can compete in a lower age group, however a lower age compeititor can compete in a higher level age group. Example being 16 year old intermediate flyer can not compete in 10 year and under intermediate group, however a 7 year old flyer can compete in Under 16 Advanced group.  The following describes important differences between the classes, making Advanced more difficult than Intermediate to perform. Flyers should safely be able to perform the maneuvers required by their chosen class.
