World Yo-Yo Contest 2017
After much discussion among judges all over the world, we have a freestyle scoring criteria change that will be effective starting with this year’s WYYC.
The only changes this year will be with evaluation criteria.
Up Until 2016:
- Space Use
- Music Use
- Body Control
Beginning in 2017:
- Control (Formerly “Cleanliness.” Name change only)
- Trick Diversity (Compared to “Variation,” it concentrates on trick choice, trick mix, trick order and trick presentation.)
- Space Use & Emphasis (Formerly “Space Use.” Name change only)
- Choreography (Formerly “Music Use.” Concentrates on hitting sounds, beats, cues, etc.)
- Construction (Formerly “Music Use.” Concentrates on mood, tone, routine, theme, etc.)
- Body Control
Detailed rules are coming soon.
