Home > What is footbag?


Freestyle footbag is a sport in which an individual performs a series of tricks of various difficulties with a small (golf ball-sized), hand-stitched bag of assorted materials, patterns, and fillers. Tricks (or moves) usually begin by setting the bag into the air from a surface of the shoe and end by catching the bag on a surface of the shoe, with any combination of various elements in between. Generally, a skilled player will link as many tricks as possible before dropping, calling on a repertoire of carefully honed individual moves and choreographing, on the fly, a complex balance of difficulty, total number of tricks, unique combinations, and aesthetic style, as seen below.
