US Open Footbag Net Championships
For the second consecutive year, SkillCon will be the venue for the US Open Footbag Net Championships. The 2018 US Open will showcase America's top athletes (and select elite athletes from Europe and Asia) competing in Footbag Net's three premier events (i.e., Singles, Doubles and Mixed).
Footbag net is considered by many to be the world's most difficult foot-only court sport. Combining the basic kicks of "Hacky Sack," the aerial kicking techniques of martial arts, and the strategy of volleyball, competitors use only their feet to kick a small 32-panel ball over a 5-foot high net within the confines of a badminton court.
Check out the action, buy a net footbag, learn the basics, and get some tips from America's top athletes on December 14th (Friday- Prelims Day) and 16th (Sunday- Finals Day) at SkillCon!
Lastly, if you're interested in participating in some 1-on-1 or small group instruction to learn the basics, contact event organizer Jeremy Mirken and ask about a beginner clinic on Saturday the 15th. Thanks, and see you at SkillCon!
