IJA regional competitions

IRC



Since 2011, IJA Regional Competitions (IRCs) have brought the IJA Stage Championship model to regional conventions and festivals around the world. IRCs have been hosted in North America, South America, Central America, and the Middle East – with plans to expand to 1-2 new regions per year. Each year, the skill level and participation in these events is increasing rapidly.

A big thank you to the donors and partners who make the expansion of this program possible!

Through the IRCs, the International Jugglers’ Association aims to:

  • Award competition routines with high caliber performance and technical skill, which are entertaining and marketable to a general public audience;
  • Promote the development and enhancement of juggling within each region;
  • Unite the international juggling community by spreading awareness of the juggling culture in each region, through promotion of these events.
