Saturday Spin Up

Tunnel Party Time!

Want some budget tunnel coaching with Christy Frikken and friends? Then, Saturday Spin-up is for you!

Get more in-air control with individually coached flight time, and when you are ready, join another flyer (and a coach!) to double your time.

All skills are welcome, from fledgling flyers to four-way freaks!


How does this event work?

You will get five minutes of individual coaching with Christy and her crew. You can work on anything you want, but each night has a Theme Skill and suggested Signature Drills for you to try.

For the Double Shot, you will either spend five more minutes honing your individual skills or doubling up with another flyer to put your new skills into practice.

When will I fly?

You won’t need to be there for the entire evening. Once we are close to the event, we will send out your exact meet and flight times. There isn’t a formal debrief for this event; however, if you stick around to the end, Christy will do an express debrief with you to highlight your improvement and what you can work on next time.

Why does it say “10-15” minutes?

If you are ready and willing to fly with others and there is a compatible partner for you, we will pair you up in three ways with your coach. In the three ways you’ll practice drills that put your individual skills into practice. By doubling up, we can extend your time while keeping the focus on improving your bodyflight!

How do I know if I am ready to fly with others?

To fly with someone else (3ways with a coach), you should be able to enter the tunnel unassisted, match fall rate, and smoothly pick up a sidebody. Again, you don’t need to be a rockstar, but we want you to be safe!

Do I have to fly with others?

Nope! If you want just 10 minutes of individual time, select that option after you register.

What Does “Theme and Signature Drills” mean?

Each Saturday Spin-Up will have an optional theme: fall rate, turns, sliding, stopping, lower body movement, moving with others/piece work, gripping, stability, and dozens of more awesome abilities.

There will be a list of targeted drills for various skill levels – The Signature Drills for the night. Signature Drills are a fun way to share focus for the group.

BUT… we can use your tunnel for any FS skill you want! You can customize your session with your coach if you have a particular focus.

How is this different from regular coaching with Christy?

There are a lot more people to start with! Saturday Spin-up is a whole evening of shared time and has a busy, fun atmosphere.

And because there are so many eager flyers, we can pair you up with others for drills (when you are ready) to stretch your value. You are sharing Christy’s attention with the group, but that is why it is so budget-friendly!

If you are interested in regular coaching, you can connect with Christy by emailing She routinely coaches at all of the tunnels in Southern California and can work out a time to fly with you.

Who are the coaches? Will I fly with Christy?

Christy Frikken is the head coach and provides the drills and direction for the night. She also has a super awesome team of volunteer assistants to help out with a large number of flyers in this type of event.

You will fly with Christy for at least some of your time, but not necessarily all of it. Her assistant coaches will step in to help you fly, provide feedback, and keep everyone prepared for every session.

Can I fly more than one block?

Yes, you can fly up to two blocks in the event.

Christy's coaching offers so much more than simply learning the dive pool--to fly well, one needs to engineer appropriately, walk purposefully, clearly understand the formations, recognize the role each flyer plays, and think. But even more to the point, each person coached receives personal attention to develop their skill, celebrating successes and examining weaknesses.
