2014 American Freestyle Open Flying Disc Championships
Austin Freestyle Club will Host the 2014 American Freestyle Open Flying Disc Championships
The Austin Freestyle Club is pleased to announce that it has been selected by the Freestyle Players Association to host the 2014 American Freestyle Open Flying Disc Championships on November 14-16 at Zilker Park Rugby Field, in Austin.
The Austin Freestyle Club, home to several World Champion Freestylers, plans to welcome over 75 top Freestyle players from around the globe, who will participate in both Open Pairs and Co-op Freestyle Competitions during the championship.
“We’re very happy that our Austin chapter has been selected to host this year’s championship, and believe that the event will complement our community’s rich live music culture,” said Chris Baker, Event Co-Director and Promoter. “Freestyle competition features 2 or 3 players performing 4-5 minute routines, all set to popular music,” he continued.
During the competition, players will be judged based on difficulty, execution, and artistic impression as they make unusual throws, athletic gyrations, trick catches and gymnastic-like moves. “Of all the Frisbee sports, Freestyle is probably the most ‘crowd-pleasing’ event,” Baker said.
The 2014 American Freestyle Open Championships will feature World Champion Freestylists, including local Austinites, James Wiseman the current top-ranked player and 2012 World Co-op Freestyle Champion; and Dan Yarnell, a 3-time former World Champion.
The championship event is open to the public and admission is free.
