Cougar Skydiving Club
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.
