2-Way for Everyone

Show us what you've got.  Show us what your club's got.

The FS 2-Way Club Clash virtual competition is for everyone, at any club in South Africa and it all goes down on 25 March.

what's it all about?

The one day, 3-round 2-way competition will see teams from around the country competing at their home clubs for club victory and individual team victory.  Each club will have a representative to submit your videos online to the central judges room.

live streaming

The live judging will be streamed throughout the day from 10am when jumps start rolling in until victory is declared. Get it onto a big screen at the club or follow on your phone.

Got something to say? Perhaps a bit of club-spirit or smack-talk for rival clubs? Submit that to your rep during the day and we'll air it over the live stream.

2-ways to win

Prizes will be thrust upon the victorious club and the victorious team.

Club winner: The club with the best average accross all their teams. So stucture your club teams smartly to nab your club the prize.

Team winner: The team with the highest total over 3 rounds. No weighting, no mercy, the best team takes the loot.

 
 

all or nothing

On Saturday night, a winner will be declared over live stream, come what may. There will be tears, beers, high-fives and come-back plots, but no second chances or extensions. Revenge and come-backs will have to wait for the next one.

how to enter

Contact one of us on the FS Committee (contacts here) to find out how to enter and who your club rep is.
