|WJF 6 Shows
|(All shows will be held in the Riviera Hotel's Royal Pavilion)
Beginners, Intermediates, Advanced Endurance and Freestyle (Friday, July 23rd at 12pm)
Several beginning through advanced competitions comprise this show. The beginners competition gives jugglers with basic skills a chance to compete against other beginners. Skill level is capped to prevent those with above beginner level skills from competing. The intermediate short program consists of three events. Balls, rings, and clubs. Each event gives the competitors two minutes to execute their best ten moves while trying to connect as many of them together as possible for connection bonuses. The intermediate short program is limited to 5 balls, 5 rings, and 4 clubs. The Advanced Endurance Competition pushes the limits of high number of object juggling. Both isolated on a chair for 7 Balls, 7 rings, 7 clubs, and 5 club backcrosses, and then on the ground for 7 clubs and up to 9 balls and 9 rings. Maybe more. The Freestyle competition is an advanced level competition where competitors alternate attempts to execute their most difficult moves within a specified number of objects and prop category. Categories include 5-7 balls, 5-7 rings, and 5-7 clubs. Drops do not count against the competitors. They only get credit for the moves the judges determine they executed successfully.

The Juniors Competition is open to competitors 15 years old and younger. Competitors must demonstrate compulsory skills with balls, rings and clubs in one routine lasting no longer than four minutes. The 3 Club Freestyle gives advanced competitors one minute to demonstrate their most difficult moves with three clubs. The Advanced Short Program consists of three events - Balls, rings, and clubs.

Long Program Competition (Sunday, July 25th at 1pm)
One of the most highly anticipated events of WJF 6, and the first time the WJF has offered a performance based juggling competition where the competitors are given six minutes and are judged on the following criteria:
1. Technical difficulty (Including connections)
2. Performance (How engaging and entertaining the performance is)
3. Choreography (Synching moves and movements to the music)
4. Execution (How well the juggling moves are executed)
5. Originality (How original your performance is including the originality of your moves and the incorporation of those moves within a live performance)
This event will be filled with variety, creativity, and originality - all combined with great juggling skills
Battle for the WJF Presidency (Sunday, July 24th at 2pm)
Jason Garfield, WJF President, will put his presidency on the line in the only competition skeptics believe he's allowed to enter. A competition where the winner gains, or retains, the title of WJF President. An award that elicits mixed emotions from fans who debate if this is a prize, or a slave labor work sentence. Either way Jason Garfield will battle a young hopeful who will do whatever is required to take over the WJF. This show will feature a variety of juggling, strength, intelligence, and speed competitions to determine who is best suited to run the World Juggling Federation.
