Freestyle frisbee is a cooperative sport that combines the basic game of throw and catch with aspects of gymnastics, dance, martial arts, and other physical disciplines. It’s both a creative art and an athletic challenge. One of the fundamental tricks in freestyle is the Nail Delay – balancing the spinning disc on your fingernail.
In competition, pairs or trios perform choreographed or spontaneous routines set to music all while spinning, twirling, tossing or rolling one or more discs. Routines are judged on their artistic merit, difficulty, and execution of the attempted moves.
Outside of competition, freestyle is an improvisation between players in which each move, throw, catch, hoop, or touch of the disc inspires and encourages the next one. This is called jamming, and to most players, it’s the most important part of the sport. Like skateboarding, snowboarding, or surfing, freestyle has its own lexicon of names for moves. And of course, moves range from beautiful to radical, elegant and flowing to sick-hard. It’s freestyle, so anything goes!
