There is a new requirement that all players competing in championship divisions at a Regional YoYo Contest MUST be a paid member of the National YoYo League for that year. Membership is $25/year, and that money goes towards helping the NYYL to provide event insurance and organizational support all NYYL events. Members will be eligible for seeding to the US National YoYo Contest, and also have their yearly contest scores tallied towards a national ranking system, with the goal of end-of-year prizes and awards for the top ranking players in the country.
NYYL membership will not be required for any non-seeding divisions, including Amateur Freestyle and Sport Ladder divisions.
NYYL membership is open now, at http://league.nationalyoyo.org/registration, and since the National YoYo League is a 501©3 non-profit organization, your membership may be considered tax deductible. This membership fee is in addition to any registration fees for individual contests, and is ONLY required for players competing in the 1A, 2A, 3A, 4A, and 5A divisions of NYYL Sanctioned Regional events.
