Our Admin

The foot bag, is a small sand or plastic bean bag, which is roughly the size of a small orange. Players bounce the different parts of their foots and knees, keeping them in the air and delivering them to other players. While this activity is popular on many campuses, this is also a competitive sport in many parts of the world. If you want to start this sport, take the time to choose the right equipment and practice basic skills.

Choose the right bag

The housings and fillings used in your hacky sack have a significant impact on your ability to keep your footbags in the air.  If you are a beginner,  look for bags made with a soft material because you'll have the most control with the least amount of effort, suggests World Footbag.  Look for bags filled with sand, which are easiest to stall on your foot as you prepare to kick or pass. If sand is unavailable, stick to bags filled with plastic beads.

Before you play, take the time to break your hacky sack and make it easier to use. Wash the fabric-covered footbag a few times with a mild detergent to soften the fabric. Rub the ball under your feet to make it soft.

Wear the right shoes

According to the statistics of the International Football Federation, Adidas pole laver is the best shoes to play foot bag, although some players like simple sandals, keep the feet exposed. If you are not ready to invest in new shoes for the sport, stick to lightweight shoes with a thickly cushioned sole. Wear shoes that are relatively flat along the instep area on the side of the shoe, which makes it easier to catch and pass the footbag. Open-toe or mesh shoes also make toe kicking and catching easier.

Position and technology

When you're learning to play foot bag, Freestyle Footbag recommends keeping your eyes on the bag at all times. This way, you're ready to catch the bag if it comes your way. Keep your energy at your feet, practice steady breathing and stay focused on the game.

It's also helpful to understand some of the basic rules of the game. Once the hacky sack has been served, keep arms, hands and shoulders out of the game. Avoid occupancy foot pocket and pass it to others, rather than trying to keep it in the air. Try not to use knee passes because they are hard to catch up.

Practice Basic Skills

Most foot bag require only four basic skills. Practice these four skills by yourself, you build confidence, so you can keep up with other players. First bounce the bag from the inside of the shoe. Keep the bag centered on the instep, and work hard to create a flat surface with your feet. Once you can repeatedly up and down the instep several times, switch to the outside edge of the foot. Next, try to bounce on your toes, then switch to your knees. Master these basic skills to improve your game and keep up with your friends.
