2017 Bay Area Classic Contest Schedule

  • 9:00 AM – 12:30: Prelims
  • 12:30 – 1:00 PM: Break / On Stage Demo’s

  • 4:00 – 5:00 PM: Awards

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.

Watch yo-yo expert Yuuki Spencer’s physics-defying tricks as he performs a demonstration at a past event.
