FPAW is the premier freestyle Frisbee event and always showcases the best talent in the sport. Teams practice for months, mastering routine choreography and honing their skills in order to make their bid to be crowned world champions. With 7 of the top 10 ranked players registered, 2018 will be another stellar event. You don’t want to miss it.
Trnava Frisbee Games will also include Disc Dog, Ultimate, and Disc Golf. Much of this action will be available on a second stream.
Here are some links to get you fired up.
The European Freestyle Open (EFO) 2018 will be live streamed. The event takes place on July 26-29 in Berlin, Germany, only one week before FPA Worlds. This will allow many players to attend both events, giving the opportunity for a pre-view of many of the FPAW teams. With 55 players already registered, it is sure to be an amazing event.
EFO will include Open Pairs, Mixed Pairs, Women’s Pairs, and Co-Op divisions using the official FPA competition format. Ryan Young and his bag of tablets will act as head judge.
For the stream, Mystiq and I will be working together to bring you the action. Randy and I are also planning to provide commentary for much of the event. All this should lead to an incredible show that you won’t want to miss.
Thanks so much to the EFO team for hosting the event and for al their support!

The Deutsche Meisterschaft (German Championships) for 2018 will be held in Nuremberg, Germany, on July 6-8. The tournament director is non other than Chris Belaj. While he is hosting this amazing event, he and his team will bringing us the action on the live stream.
Deutsche Meisterschaft will include open pairs, mixed pairs, and open co-op divisions. This event is sure to have some exciting routines as it regularly draws top talent from all over Europe. With the European championships also in July and the World Championships the week after, Deutsche Meisterschaft will give teams an opportunity to tune up their routines.
On June 30 – July 1, Ryan Young is once again hosting the annual freestyle competition as a part of a larger ultimate event named Sunbreak (formerly Potlatch), held by DiscNW. We will be bringing you the Freestyle action live!
The scene at Sunbreak is an amazing one. The event is held at 60 Acres Park and has 79 ultimate teams. Tucked away on half a field is the freestyle tent. There, among all the frisbee energy, we will shred our brains out. But the excitement doesn’t end there! Ryan Young always has an innovative competition format that is designed to test both our freestyle and our strategic skills. This years tournament includes 3 events: Open Pairs, Follow the Leader, and the Flower Round.
Open pairs has a twist: teams play 3 times, for 1 minute on each time. Only their highest score counts. This should inspire teams bring out their biggest moves right from the start, as there’s no time to ramp-up; and it only takes 2-3 hein combos to lay down a crushing score.
Follow the Leader is an interesting twist on the game of horse. A player will do a combo, then other players try to replicate it. The originating player will earns points based on how few players can replicate the combo. However, if no players can replicate the combo, the originating player receives no points. So the goal is to do a combo that is really hard, but not so hard that no one can do it. This will require careful thought and a deep knowledge of the other players’ abilities.
Of course, the Flower Round is a staple of this event. Teams are drawn from a hat and then play for 3 minutes. The audience grabs flowers and prepares. As the team performs, if the audience likes what they see, they throw the flowers into the playing area. Everyone is a winner in this event, with hein jamming and positive emotions throughout.
The only warning I must give is that the internet can be unreliable at 60 Acres Park. If this is the case, we will record the event and replay it in the evening.
