The Ladder Division
In this division, players will have a tricklist that they must complete as far as they can. The person who goes the farthest on the ladder wins the competition. A trick is deemed complete when all steps of the trick are completed successfully, and the yoyo is brought back to the hand with NO MORE than 3 inches of string between the finger and the yoyo.
For the tricklist, please look here (www.nationalyoyo.org/pdf)
The Freestyle Division
The Freestyle division is when the player comes up with a routine to their own music. The routine shall be no more than 1 minute long, and the music can be any genre, but the lyrics MUST remain PG. (i.e. no foul language or content) If the music is deemed “inappropriate,” the player shall be disqualified immediately.
Players may enter in both the Ladder and Freestyle competition.
