The 2013 NEW YORK STATE YO-YO CHAMPIONSHIPS will be taking place at Niagara Hobby & Craft Mart in Cheektowaga on September 13th & 14th, 2013. This all ages event will be absolutely FREE for the general public to attend, open to competitors from ANYWHERE in the world, and will have the distinction of being the VERY FIRST National Yo-Yo League sanctioned contest to ever take place in Western New York. It will also be the first New York State Championship to be held since 2008. After a five year contest drought, players from all over New York, the USA and possibly beyond will be making their way to Buffalo this September for a shot at winning cash, prizes, and some well-deserved bragging rights.
Featuring a Sport Division for the beginners, and five separate Championship Divisions for the pros (1A, 2A, 3A, 4A, & 5A), this event will cater to yo-yo enthusiasts of all skill levels and styles of play. Also, to add to the excitement, the 1A Division will be decided via a single elimination tournament, forcing competitors to be on fire all weekend in order to win the $1,000 cash prize. By upping the ante in the 1A Division, it will test the mettle of even the most experienced of yo-yo players, but still also provide a highly entertaining format for the people in the audience who have never even thrown a yo-yo before.
