Sideline events

This year’s Online Worlds hopes to provide opportunities for all footbag players. There is no entry fee and no barrier to skill level. We have a number of different events to try out. There is no need to register, just post your video to social media using these hashtags:

#WFC2021Sideline and #OnlineFootbagWorlds2021 (Instagram Stories not permitted)

You can post to Instagram (Instagram Stories not permitted), Youtube orTwitter. You can also submit directly to You can start filming from July 1.

You have one minute to do as many kicks as you can. You must start by dropping the bag from your hand. Stalls are counted as a drop. There will be no punishment for a drop. Only one entry per competitor. Open until August 18th.

The five minute kicks will follow the official rules. The bag can not touch your upper body and you must change feet every kick. Each kick counts as one point. Drops and upper body fouls lose 10 points. A foul for not changing feet incurs a three point penalty. Open until August 20. You can upload your video to Youtube or Google Drive or send directly to

There will be 10 combos throughout the competition time. You will have a certain time to submit your combo to stay in the game. The tricks will gradually increase in difficulty. This is intended for beginners, but any players are welcome to play along. These combos will be published here on August the 1st.

This is an opportunity to tell us what’s happening in your part of the world. Feel free to give us a snapshot of what your scene looks like. If you play alone, show us some tricks. If you have a group circle kicking, let’s see your moves. This is open to anyone in the world and is a great opportunity to share your footbag story with the world. Video entries must be between 30 seconds to 2 minutes. Upload your video to Youtube and send a link to Open until August 31.

We would love to see some of the junior members of the footbag scene show some skills. If you have been playing footbag at your school, we would love to see some of your moves. Please make sure you have appropriate photo permissions as these videos will be shared with the footbag community through the IFPA Youtube Channel. Let us know if you are a primary/elementary school or high school student. Videos can be filmed by school staff or by students themselves. Video entries can be up to 2 minutes long. Upload your video to Youtube and send a link to Open until August 31.
