Hall of Fame

The Footbag Hall of Fame (often abbreviated ?HoF?) is footbag?s group of honored people that have contributed greatly to footbag?s growth since 1972, when it was first invented. The current membership is kept up to date on the footbag.org group (so check there to see the current member list).

History

John Stalberger met Mike Marshall by chance in 1972. John liked Mike?s kicking idea of using a homemade sack filled with beans. From his background in football, baseball, and physical therapy, John took the homemade sack and turned it into a specifically designed object. A ?Hacky Sack,? for playing a new game called ?Footbag.? The first round Footbag was a 2-piece design, similar to a baseball, and the plastic pellets worked ideally for giving the Footbag new energy with every kick. John then began figuring out the best coordinated athletic movements for this new game.

Emphasis was put on the study of the proper kicking techniques, and the correct use of the upper body for counter-balancing. Equal use of both feet to block the angles of the Footbags flight would also help control the Footbag and avoid injuries. These new techniques helped develop greater levels of concentration, coordination, flexibility, and strength. All of which are needed for any sport.

Not to mention it was fun and could be played by all ages, and skill levels! It was also realized that this new game could be used as an exercise by any athlete as a warm up, and/or basic training. They also envisioned that a sport could be created from this new game.

After Mike suddenly and tragically died in his sleep in 1975, John continued on with the dream. He started a Footbag manufacturing company called ?The National Hacky Sack Company.? This was the first company to start organizing and teaching the footbag concept to schools in Oregon.

In 1977 his friends helped him form a player?s association for the sport, named ?The National Hacky Sack Association.? (The NHSA) The first ever Footbag tournament was held in Oregon City, Oregon.

Today, Mike and John?s dreams have been realized. Footbag has become a full-fledged sport that is played worldwide. Their dedication continues to be the inspiration for the game and sport of Footbag.

Video contest

An annual Video Contest has been a tradition for the last 11 years and we the organisers of the Worlds 2016 in Trnava are going to make that number 12.

There is plenty of time still to gather ideas for your videos, recruit your friends and dust off your editing skills. All videos are welcome, as long as you send them before the deadline of XY June.

Judging criteria

The final score of a video in the contest will be made up of the judges? decision and spectators? preference. The weight of both will be derived from the number of votes gathered from the audience, hence will likely not be equal.

All judges will be obliged to explain their scoring when asked. While the votes from the spectators will be based purely on their preference, the judges shall follow following criteria.

Points will be awarded for:

  • Originality/Creativity. Any attempts at creating a unique video is seen as positive.
  • Content. Self explanatory. If the judges like the concept and the content of your video, you will get a high score. Hint: Judges like footbag.
  • Cleanliness/Form. Any shred in your videos will be assessed on the cleanliness of the tricks and good form/posture while playing. The difficulty and intensity will not be ignored either and may especially help you get the audience on your side.
  • Showcasing possibilities. Could your video be used to promote our sport? Do the players express positive emotions? Is the bag visible? Are you sure? Really? If not, get some big balls from any of the many renowned footbag stitchers.
  • Camera/Edit. A fair amount of points will be granted for good camera work and sharp editing skills.

Points will be deducted for:

  • Lack of flow and Music/Shred synergy. While you can do triple dexes to Enya and Tiltless to Napalm Death, it is discouraged and not advised.
  • Plagiarism. You can inspire yourself by the work of other, just try not to go overboard.
  • Showing footbag in a bad light. We may all be lunatics, but let?s keep it to ourselves. :-)

We reserve all rights to not include any submitted video that should be found inappropriate or in any way offensive in the contest.

Submissions

Submit your videos at janousek315@gmail.com. If they are too large to send by email, either upload them to an international cloud (Dropbox, for example) or upload them on Youtube as unlisted. Do not release your videos or show them to others before they are revealed at the contest venue.

If you have any questions about the contest or anything to discuss about the rules, please contact me either by email or Facebook.

Thank you and have a good day.
