Holy Jam 2019 Will Be Live Streamed

Holy Jam PosterHolyJam 2019 takes place on March 8 – 9 in Tel Aviv, Israel. Thanks to Jakub “Mystiq” Matula, this event will be streamed live here on FrisbeeGuru.

This event takes place the weekend after Frisbeer Cup. I happen to know many people who are making a 2 tournament trip out of these events, which means that HolyJam will be well attended. Possibly more exciting is the fact the jam scene in Israel is growing quickly with many up and coming shredders. This will be a chance for them to test their skills and to witness and learn from the best.

HolyJam will be using the FPA judging committee’s prototype judging system, with Ryan Young at the helm. This will another good opportunity to see that system in action.

Frisbeer Cup 2019 Live Stream

Frisbeer CupFrisbeer Cup 2019 takes place in Prague, CZ on Mar 1 – 3. Thanks to Jakub “Mystiq” Matula, the event will be streamed live.

This is the 13th annual Frisbeer Cup. Frisbeer takes place indoors. With its long history of a relaxed and fun vibe, experimental formats, and huge gym space, this event tends to be one of the largest Freestyle Frisbee events outside of the world championships. Many of the top players make appearances and often teams getting ready for worlds use frisbeer as a place to preview their routines.

This year, Frisbeer Cup will be using the protype judging system from the FPA judges committee.

You can watch the event here.

Get Ready for City vs City 2019 Finals – Feb 9th @ 2p EST/8p CET

City vs City 2019City vs City 2019 Finals are almost upon us: Feb 9 @ 2p EST/8p CET. It’s time to find out who will be crowed the heinest city for 2019. 

In one corner we have New York City. New York made a strong showing in Round 1, with back and forth scoring. They had a few early drops but mostly their play was exciting and on the edge. They also came with some choreography for the opening CoOp and Pairs battles, ending with the patented leg trap.

In the other corner we have Berlin. In Round 2 they started off slow, losing the opening rounds but then brought the hammer in 1v1, with zero mistakes or hesitation. In 1v1 they showed a high level of creativity and tradition “hein”, with multiple spinning combos and huge catches.

New York’s keys to victory will be to take control early, and dictate the pace. If they can take CoOp and Pairs and then continue to shred into 1v1, they could run away with an early win before Berlin has a chance to show all their skills. If Berlin starts winning battles, New York will have its work cut out to keep up. Having a 2 point lead going into 1v1 could make a big difference.

Berlin’s keys to victory are to weather the early storm, and pull ahead at the end. If Berlin plays as they did in Round 2, there may a be a turning point moment where they score a key victory. At this point, strategically choosing players and shredding will put the pressure on New York. If New York cracks, Berlin could end up a stronger roster near the end of 1v1 and ultimately winning. 

What do you think are the keys to victory for each city?
