Official re-opening of BPA HQ
Truth be told, we never closed! But as the days get longer and we look forward to spring, BPA HQ in Leicester LE2 9TF has its official re-opening ceremony at 11:30 for noon on Tuesday 21 February. The event is expected to last for an hour or so and the media has been invited. Members are welcome to attend providing you let us know in good time, so we don't run out of twiglets! Parking will be at a pay-and-display car park in nearby Blaby with a minibus shuttle to BPA HQ. We'll provide joining instructions to those who are on our list of expected members and guests. For members who visited before the refurb, you won't recognise the old place!
Welcome to Rise Up
Welcome to Rise Up - a BPA Mentoring and Skills-sharing network developed by Yassi Molazadeh of the BPA Development Committee. Through the BPA, Yassi has created a structured skills-sharing and support network. Don’t be mistaken; this is not a mentoring program just for 'baby skydivers'. Rise Up offers advice and assistance on a wide range of topics such as progression, competition, sponsorship, grievance, finance, safety and careers. Find out more about Rise Up - and sign up - here!
Here you'll find a wealth of online resources for skydiving - download the BPA Operations Manual, plus forms you'll need before you can jump in the UK - and much more!
