The Windchill Footbag tourney is movin' on to be KICK VOLLEY 01

02/14/09 | by yevez | Categories: General, Footbag, Life of pleasures, Sports and Games

After years of tournaments named the Montreal Windchill Footbag Net tournament, main organizer Yves Archambault moves on to rename the event: KICK VOLLEY 01.

It’s a fresh approach to the problematic of making this sport known. In the past the name Footbag conveyed a lot of good but also a lot of confusion as the general public had to deal with a lot of different footbag forms: Footbag Circle, Footbag Freestyle, Footbag Net and even Footbag Golf.

The name KICK VOLLEY is much more descriptive of what the athletes in this sport are doing. KICK is the martial arts component as many of the spikes are or could be inspired by martial arts KICKS. VOLLEY is the part of the name that describes the playing over the net with the 3 hits per side thing, only this time it’s all done with feet only, no hands, no chest block, no knees. The event is scheduled to take place on march 21st and 22nd at: Le Cégep du Vieux-Montréal. More info this week.
