Fresh Meet 2024 – the 6th edition
Main Event – Saturday 3-way Competition
The main event kicks off Saturday with a 3-way competition. Each team is composed of two new jumpers and an experienced mentor. You’ll do four exciting skydives, but the competition won’t be only about the jumps! Points will be earned on the ground as well, with a series of escape room-style games, skill-based activities, and a scavenger hunt spirit.

All Access, All Event!
All five days will allow you access to the Perris excellent load organizers staff who can design jumps for your experience level. We are busy brewing fun social experiences like the Sky-Curious speed event, where you can meet experts in all the avenues you might explore in your future in skydiving, and a photo scavenger hunt for all four days. Enjoy access to gear manufacturer tents all weekend long. Everyone gets a goody bag, and if you register in time, a unique event T-shirt!
