MIAMI, July 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The sport of the future, also known as YOU.FO, has landed in the USA! YOU.FO is a fly hybrid of lacrosse and ultimate frisbee. It's played with specially designed aluminum sticks used to throw and catch an engineered, aerodynamic double-decker ring over distances of 10-30 yards. YOU.FO can be played one-on-one or in teams, with goals or freestyle, in city parks, on sports fields or at the beach. It is recommended for ages 12 and up.
Of the company's recent launch in the USA, YOU.FO Inventor/CEO Bas Ruyssenaars said, "YOU.FO is extraordinarily out of the ordinary, and I am so excited to introduce it to the United States. It is both fun and challenging to play, which makes it very addicting to master. One successful throw and catch, and you'll be hooked!"
YOU.FO can be bought online only at www.youfousa.com for $99 with free shipping, which includes 2 sticks, 1 ring, and a carry bag. It's not yet available in retail stores. To celebrate its launch, the company is offering a chance to win a free set on its homepage every month through the end of the year.
