Determine which of the divisions you would like to compete in.
Pick a song for your 3 Minutes Freestyle routine.
**Song must be family-friendly, no explicits/profanities.**
Gather the yo-yos best suited for your Division of choice and start practicing hard.
3 mins Freestyle:
- The scoring criteria will be the current IYYF contest rules.
- Final Championship Freestyle Score = sum of points for
Technical Execution (60.00-points maximum) plus
Freestyle Evaluation (40.00-points maximum) minus Major deductions
- Yo-Yo stop (restart), Yo-Yo discard (change), Yo-Yo detach (string cut) and dangerous play will be subject of this deduction.
Yo-Yo Stop (Restart) – Minus 1
- Any stop of yo-yo spin with string fully unwound will be subject. Even if the yo-yo does not stop completely, if you need to help the yo-yo to regain its spin with your hand or string, it will be considered as a yo-yo stop.
Yo-Yo Discard (Change) – Minus 3
- Any yo-yo discard will be subject. Leap of 4A and 5A yo-yos, or any yo-yo change or stop using the yo-yo will be counted.
When the Performance Ends
- If the contestant cannot make the yo-yo come back to the hand fully wound and ready to throw, both a stop and a discard will be counted as a discard (minus 3). The string can have knots or be jammed, yet it needs to be fully wound to avoid the deduction.
Yo-Yo Detach (String Cut) – Minus 5
- Yo-Yo coming apart, string cut, or string detach for 1A, 2A, 3A, 5A (yo-yo and weight both) will be counted as a Yo-Yo Detach (Minus 5).
-Refer http://iyyf.org/wyyc2018-rules/freestyle-rules-2018/ for more info.
Long sleeper division:
- All participants will be on stage, on the count of 3, all participants will throw a long sleeper.
- The last one standing with the yo-yo spinning on stage will win.
- Due to the constrain of the contest time, we will only allow normal playable 1A yo-yo.
(No BTH, No Motorised yo-yo, No battery powered yo-yo, No extra heavy yo-yo)
- Participant will perform a 1:30 minutes freestyle of any division.
- Participant will be blindfolded at all times.
- Participant should be extra careful if he/she is performing a 4A/5A freestyle.
- If any yo-yo jumps into the audience area behind the judges’ table, the player will be subject to disqualification.
