2018 Bay Area Classic Contest Schedule

  • 10:00 am – 12:30 Prelims
  • 12:30 – 1:00 pm Break / On Stage Demo’s
  • 1:00 – 4:00 pm Finals, 2A, 3A, 4A, 5A, 1A (in this order)
  • 4:00 – 5:00 pm Awards
  • 5:00 pm + Hangout and YoYo in the Park (not in the amphitheatre)

The Bay Area Classic is second only to the U.S. National Yo-yo Contest in terms of prestige and competition, though some players actually focus as much emphasis on winning the BAC as Nationals or even the World Yo-Yo Contest.

California has produced some of the greatest modern yo-yo players in the world, and the BAC is the one contest each year they are all guaranteed to attend.
