VA Beach Four
Why this name for your team?
We are the VA BEACH FOUR, because there are 4 of us,
and we all work at iFLY VA BEACH.
We’re real creative, huh?
When and why was the team formed ?
We originally formed the team for the 2017 nationals as a fun side project. After performing well enough to earn a medal, we decided to step in to the workshop and build a better team. Our current line-up will have 19 days to train before we leave for the Sakura Cup.
Where do you train ?
All of our training was held at the US Dojo, AKA: iFLY VA BEACH.
