Nike seeks freestylers in the Chicago area

Post by expert » 28 Nov 2005, 06:38

Announcement: Nike & NRG Sports are seeking talented freestylers in the Chicagoland area. These individuals would have a sponsorship deal with Nike valued at $2500. The appearances could range from demos at local tournaments to modeling new Nike products at sales meetings.
NRG already manage a team of 12 called FC Magia in LA. As Nike increases its presence in Chicago they would like to have a similar group. Ideally, individuals should live in Chicago or within 3-4 hours distance. They will be conducting their search in the next 6 weeks at the Open Field Nights (weekly 3 v 3 scrimmages) around Chicago. They'll also consider video submissions, but in person is the best way to go.
Feel free to post your questions here.

I live in Chicago! but I aint a good freestyler, crap if only I started earlier!!!!!!!! Now I got no time. TOo bad, I'll just keep on concetrating on the game aspect rather than freestyling.

yeah it is way over and it was stupid! it was sad to see the skill level at the finals...only moves people could do were atw, cross, toe bounce, and htw from footstall. even the guys on FC Magia from LA can't do that much. i was doing tatw's, atatw's, amatw's, etc. yet i didnt get picked :? kind of annoying haha
