Registration Open for 2013 IFPA World Footbag Championships!

Reposting the Good Word from the Announcement List:

World Footbag is an official sponsor of the 2013 World Footbag Championships being held in Montreal, Canada. We’re excited to sponsor this event another year strong! And we can’t wait to see the awesome videos that come from the Footbag video contest too!!!


Here is the info from the Announce List:

Hello Footbaggers across the world!

Online registration is now open for the 34th Annual IFPA World Footbag
Championships in Montreal, Canada, from July 28th until August 4th.

Registration is MANDATORY for all competitors by the deadline of July 15th.

So please register and pay now online here:

If you want to compete at Worlds this year, you MUST register online and
PAY by July 15th, 2013.

There will be NO on-site or late registration. Whether you are a
competitor, a sideline player, a volunteer or a member of the staff, please
register and pay here today:

If you’re a non-competitor, you’re still asked to pay in advance to
simplify check-in and help confirm headcounts, but you may register online
and pay when you check in to get your players’ pack.

You can pay the registration fee by PayPal or a bank transfer. But since
bank transfer fees can be high, and take a long time to be processed,
we strongly recommend PayPal (which also allows you to use credit
cards if you don’t already have a PayPal account).

Registration takes just a couple of minutes, so there is no reason not to
do it now.

If you don’t have a credit card or can’t use a bank transfer, you may ask a
friend to pay on your behalf. For PayPal, simply ask your friend to go to
your registration form, sign in to your account, and then
submit the form and choose PayPal, and then sign in to their PayPal account
to complete the payment.

You can still change your registration any time you like, before the
deadline of July 15th. This includes finding/changing partners up until the
very last day of online registration. If you have already paid and you make
a change that affects your total fee calculation, then we will either
refund or collect the difference when you check-in for the tournament in

If you don’t have a partner, that’s okay — go ahead and register and pay
without a partner for each event you need a partner for. Then, when
registration closes, we will send an email to each registrant giving a list
of available partners who have registered so that you can pair up.

It will be up to you to confirm your partnership with your partner, and to
update your registration form. (It will be possible to add/remove partners
for 48 hours after the deadline. But you may not make any other changes
at that point.)

Also, don’t wait to reserve your accommodation in Montreal. We’ve got great
options at the special footbag rate for you here:

Check the official Worlds 2013 website regularly for the latest information
and updates at:

The Net Director for this year’s event will be Luc Legault.
The Freestyle Director will be Steve Goldberg.

If you are interested in volunteering or being on staff, please contact me
directly at or contact the event directors if you wish
to volunteer for a specific event. (Please do not “reply to all” since it is
not permitted on the announcements list; so please reply only to me.)

Looking forward to seeing you in Montreal this summer!
