Footbag is a growing sport, originating in North America, though the sport is now played all over the world. Frequently referred to as Hacky Sack® (the registered trademark for a product manufactured by Wham-O, Inc.), footbag has existed as a competitive sport in several forms since 1972. There are a substantial number of footbag tournaments and festivals each year.
Competitive footbag is governed by the International Footbag Players Association, Inc., a charitable non-profit corporation to promote footbag as an amateur competitive sport. The rules are published by the International Footbag Committee (IFC). The rule book, Rules of Footbag Sports, is available on-line and is translated (or being translated) into many popular languages.
The most popular competitive footbag sports are Footbag Net and Freestyle.
Footbag Net is a singles or doubles court game, like tennis or volleyball, where players use only their feet to kick the footbag over a five-foot-high net.
Footbag Freestyle has evolved into a very technical competitive discipline. Players compete by choreographing routines, performing very difficult combinations of footbag tricks to music (much like figure skating). Routines are judged along four axes: presentation, difficulty, variety, and execution.
