This year, we will have yoyo FREESTYLES and SPEED LADDERS on stage

For Kendama, we will have Kendama SPEED LADDERS and the BEST TRICK CONTEST

The Yoyo freestyle portion of the contest will consist of 1A and Open Divisions. All players welcome (no age restrictions this year). Freestyles will be 1-minute runs.

Yoyo Speed ladders will work like Kendama speed ladders, where contestants will line up on stage and run through a trick ladder as fast as possible. There will be two ladders, levels 1 and 2, posted below. First one to finish their ladder wins!

Level 1                                                              Level 2

Sleeper (5 seconds)                                              1.5 Mount
Breakaway (5 seconds)                                        Plastic Whip
Rock the Baby (5 Rocks)                                        Cold Fusion
Eiffel Tower                                                        Buddha’s Revenge (two repetitions)
Elevator (Bottom - Top - Bottom)                            Poppin Fresh (4 pops)
Brain Twister                                                      Eli Hops (5 hops - half length of string)
Trapeze                                                              Skin the Gerbil
Double or Nothing                                                Gyroscopic Flop (Half flop)
Split the Atom (Three Somersaults)                        Kwijibo
Mach 5 (5 rotations)                                            Hidemasa Hook

Kendama Speed Ladders will be run onstage with contestants running through kendama trick ladders as fast as possible. Like the yoyo ladders, there will be two levels. First to finish wins!

Level 1                                        Level 2

Frying Pan -> Bungee -> Frying Pan All American
Airplane                                      Spacewalk -> In -> Thunderdrop/One-Turn Spacewalk
Swing Candlestick -> Tap to Small Cup  Gorilla Grip Airplane
Swing Spike                                 Lunar -> Lighthouse -> In -> J-stick

Kendama Best Trick Contest is pretty self explanatory. Show us your best trick! A group of judges will compare everyone’s best trick and select a winner based on your trick’s impact, creativity, coolness, and other important factors

Entry fee is a FLAT FEE OF $10 FOR AS MANY DIVISIONS AS YOU WANT TO COMPETE IN*

YOU CAN COMPETE IN 1A, OPEN, YOYO LADDER, KENDAMA LADDER, AND BEST TRICK FOR THE FLAT 10 DOLLARS!!!

Or you can pick and choose which events you want to be in :slight_smile: Whatever you do, you will be onstage for each one

*Contestants may only compete in one level of yoyo ladder and one level of kendama ladder. They may not compete in levels 1 and 2 for yoyo and/or kendama

In between divisions, we will have professional demonstrations from people such as JOSEPH HARRIS, TYLER SEVERANCE, and KEVIN NICHOLAS

The contest will be Saturday, July 19th at the center court of the Roseville Galleria Mall, near Sacramento
