Boomerang Team Sponsors 2013

Team Sponsorship Sends boomerang carnets® Out and Back Again

Ten-Year Relationship

Boomerang carnets® has been a proud sponsor of the United States Boomerang Association (U.S.B.A.) and its world-class boomerang team since January, 2004. We discovered the professional team when we were launching our boomerang carnets® ATA Carnet brand in December, 2003.

Since then, boomerang carnets® (formerly boomerang freight® solutions) has sponsored the U.S.B.A. and its team through 5 World Cup Championships: Brazil 2012, Italy in 2010 (U.S. Team brought home the World Championship), Seattle 2008, Japan 2006 and France in 2004.  In addition, we've sponsored several National Championship and regional tournaments.

An Emerging Sport With International Fans

The emerging sport has enthusiasts all over the world, from countries as far away as Japan, Brazil and Australia, to name a few.

The return flight of a boomerang inspires awe and wonder and the sport attracts athletes from many walks of life and corners of the world. The new   photos in our gallery below capture the spirit of the sport and our ongoing support. Boomerang Videos

 

U.S.B.A. Sponsor Photo Gallery

Photo #1: 2013 National Champion, Takeshi Honda of Japan, receives his trophy from David Hirsch, Tournament Director, on our behalf. Honda cannot compete as an American in the 2014 World Cup because he isn’t a citizen residing in the U.S. He maintains his Japanese citizenship where he is a street performer specializing in magic and yo-yos.

 

Photo #2: Boomerang players from all over the United States (and sometimes other countries, as with Honda) compete to win the National Champion title. They also compete to secure a place on the U.S. Boomerang Team. The U.S. Boomerang Team competes internationally every other year. In 2014 the World Boomerang Championships will be held in Australia.

Photo #3: Boomerang players try out to be part of the 2014 U.S. Boomerang Team.

Many thanks to David Hirsch and other U.S.B.A. members  for these photos. David is the 2005 National Long Distance Champion and a world record holder, at 126 meters, for men 50 and over.

  

The modern sport of boomerangs as we know it today began in the 1960s. Today, there are 25 countries with national boomerang organizations and a World Cup is held every two years. There are Individual tournaments (with Novice, Intermediate and Advanced divisions), Team Tournaments and informal games.

The USA Boomerang Team, selected by the United States Boomerang Association (USBA), has represented the United States in eighteen World Boomerang Championships; starting Down Under in 1981 with the first Australia vs. USA Boomerang Championship, and most recently Brazil in 2012.   A US Team has won 11 out of 18 Championships.
