Coach Ready Assessment


The IBA Coach fulfills and extremely important role within the sport of Indoor Skydiving (also known as Bodyflight), with involvement in the coaching of a variety of disciplines ranging from the development of basic flight skills to full competition flying. As such, they contribute to the IBA Vision by providing a safe coaching environment for flyers and demonstrating a genuine culture of excellence and safety within the community of IBA Flyers. The IBA has created a "Fundamentals of Coaching Guide" which helps to explain the coaching methodology. A coach candidate will be required to complete the “Tunnel Coach Ready” assessment, prior to being trained as an IBA Coach. The assessment, is a written confirmation of understanding of the IBA Fundamentals of Coaching Guide.

The IBA distinguishes between the sport of indoor skydiving (engaged in by patrons with IBA accounts seeking approval of flight skills though the IBA's Flight Progression System) and recreational flying (engaged in by entertainment customers who do not intend to pursue approval of skills). While indoor skydiving is safe for all ages, the inherent risk of the activity is necessarily greater for those engaging in the sport of indoor skydiving, particularly as they progress through more sophisticated maneuvers.
