For AFF and Category Systems courses a maximum weight limit of 15st (95kg) fully clothed applies. However, all students should also be within the recommended height:weight ratio with a BMI of 27.5 or less.
The minimum weight is 7st (44kg) and minimum height 4ft11 (149.86 cm). Those who have a height and/or weight under this will require a harness fitting assessment before being approved
If you have any medical conditions, injuries or any other enquiries please read here for more information and don't hesitate to contact us
The minimum jumps for both AFF and Category Systems is 18 but the average tends to be more than that if you need to repeat a level. It's all about muscle memory and currency so it varies between individuals.
