A Footbag is…

  • The interior of a footbag can be filled with plastic pellets or sand. The more tightly packed it is, the bouncier it is, and the more loosely packed it is the stickier it is. Sand filled bags is growing in popularity for their benefits of easy delaying (a trick where you stall the bag on your foot/leg etc). Even the plastic pellets can differ the feel of a footbag, from soft and waxy, to hard and crunchy.

  • Kick Back - kicking the footbag against the backstop of a handball court, alone or with others. Needs a very firm footbag to bounce back. You can keep a simple score or not.

  • 2. Copy Cat - in a circle, each consecutive kicker does the previous kick the same way and then adds his/her own kick or sequence of kicks, with the next kicker repeating that sequence of kicks and adding one more, and so on. 3. Round Robin - first kicker kicks the footbag once (passes it), second kicker kicks it twice (passing on the second kick), third kicker kicks it three times (passing on the third kick), and so on.

A few side notes l.jpg
A few side notes…

  • Footbag is actually an ancient sport, with its roots in North America and Asia. There is evidence of a game that native North Americans played using a sack made of animal hide, filled with pellets or sand. Feathers were sometimes attached to give it a flight similar to a badminton birdie.

  • By the 1980s, different varieties of the sport had evolved including “Footbag net" where players volley a footbag over a 5-foot-high net, "Freestyle Footbag" where players stand in a circle and do tricks with the Bag while passing it around the circle, and "Footbag Golf".
