This event is designed to showcase a player’s performance ability. Each performer has one minute and thirty seconds to display a choreographed routine to a panel of judges and the spectating crowds. Choosing a song/piece of music the freestyler attempts to mix crowd pleasing entertainment with technical execution while working to keep the footbag from dropping. Whoever puts on the best executed show and drops the least wins, very exciting!
This head to head competition is as exciting as it gets. Working their way through pools of four players per circle, freestylers compete directly with their counterparts to execute the best combos which will lead them to finals. Each circle has two rounds, variety and density. Variety showcases a player’s range of tricks and combos while density displays their technical ability to hit difficult combos. Check out this thrilling competition where the country’s top players work to outdo one another to be crowned shredder supreme!
Request is a newer elimination style event where players once again battle head to head, this time to execute two trick combos dictated by the judges. It begins with one giant circle of all competitors, each player has three tries to hit the two trick combination requested of them. Those who hit move on to the next round, those who do not are eliminated. The circle grows smaller until only one player remains. Competing this year is Request World Champion Jim Penske, be sure not to miss this one!
