Freestyle is a solo discipline where aspects such as beauty, difficulty and composition of tricks are valued, within a flight set.
Flyers perform both Free and Compulsory routines 60 seconds in length. Exact number of Rounds and composition of Rounds is specific to the single meet.
Compulsory routines require particular moves be performed, but the sequence and choreography of the routine are designed by the flyer.
Routines are sometimes flown to music, adding another layer of difficulty as flyers must fly in sync to the song of their choice.
Creativity and difficulty are awarded in these disciplines as flyers work to amaze and impress the crowd and the judges.
How is it judged?

- Technique and Difficulty
In free rounds with music, in addition to the above, the synchronization of the routine with music will be assessed.
