Action sports aren’t always something that most parents are ready to introduce as they are often perceived as being too dangerous. However, many people are unaware of its emotional and psychological benefits, especially to the adolescent. Indoor skydiving for instance, isn’t meant for adult only.
In fact, two Singaporean teens, Kyra Poh and Choo Yi Xuan blazed the trail for this sport in 2016. They came up tops against more than 100 teams in the Bodyflight World Challenge, the world’s largest indoor skydiving competition. If you are keen to get started, the iFLY Indoor Skydiving offers a fully-controlled and safe environment for your teens to master the art of flying.
Teenagers who crave for thrill-seeking activities can pose challenges for parents who are concerned for their safety. iFly Singapore uses proven training and safety system from the International Bodyflight Association (IBA) which is responsible for developing, education and enforcing safety and training rules for flight in vertical wind tunnels globally. Rest assured, you will be in safe hands. With that peace of mind, don’t just sit out on the fun. There’s nothing more motivating for your teen than to have you master the sport together!
Although the activity is conducted indoors, your teen gets to experience true free-fall conditions, just like a real skydive. It’s a big confidence boost to your teen, having made the big leap to overcome his or her fears. Feeling more accomplished, your teens will come to the realisation that achieving their goals isn’t always as difficult as how they had perceived it to be.
Indoor skydiving not only builds their character, but helps to shape their personalities as well. The adrenaline boost isn’t just a mental rejuvenation. According to Julia Spaniol, a psychology professor at Toronto’s Ryerson University, thrill-seeking behaviour helps to shape personalities as well. Indoor skydiving allows your teen to develop an increased awareness, heightening perceptions of themselves. With new experiences, your teen will be able to self-actualise and discover who they are.
