Navy Parachute Team Releases 2014 Schedule

By Mass Communication Specialist 1st Class Fletcher Gibson
Navy Parachute Team Public Affairs

The U.S. Navy Parachute Demonstration Team, the Leap Frogs, has released their full 2014 show season schedule, which includes sporting events, air shows, and Navy-sponsored Fleet Weeks.

The team is scheduled to perform at 28 events in 16 states, ranging from New York to Hawaii.

“We hit the training pretty hard this winter,” said Lt. Dan Gibson, the team’s officer in charge, “and now we’re ready to hit the country and show everyone just what we can do.”

The eight-man team is made up of members of Naval Special Warfare, including a select group of Sea, Air and Land commandos (SEALs) extensively trained in parachuting. The Leap Frogs’ aerial performances demonstrate the high-altitude jumps, in-air maneuverability, and linked-canopy teamwork the team is famous for.

The show season started March 3 with a Joint Military Capabilities Demonstration in New Orleans and wraps up with San Diego’s annual Holiday Bowl game December 29.

“Some of these places are old favorites, and it’s always good to revisit these areas,” Gibson said. “Others we’ve never been to before, or at least not recently, and bring the joy of demonstrating to a whole new audience.”
