College of Charleston
Cougar Skydiving Club
Jumping Clyde

Welcome to the Cougar Skydivers web pages. The club advisor and webmaster is Jeff Wragg. Don't hesitate to contact me.

While we have had 100+ students in a year make a tandem skydive, we don't have a sufficiently large nucleus of active skydivers to qualify as an official club anymore. I maintain the web pages in hopes of resurrecting the club someday, and as a means of providing a information to interested people on campus.

The closest DZs are Skydive Walterboro and Skydive Carolina. Walterboro is a smaller DZ, and is about an hour from Charleston. Skydive Carolina is between Columbia and Charlotte, about 2 1/2 hours away, but is a much bigger and more active operation with bigger aircraft. There are DZs all over the country though, in nearly every state. The United States Parachute Association (USPA) has a database of DZs if you want to find something close to home. Be very leary of searching the internet, as there are some internet-based operations with questionable practices.

Skydive Carolina usually hosts a College Skydiving Weekend in the spring. Get out for it and meet college students from all over.

If you have any questions, just send me a note on this email form or email me directly.
