on squares and streets as several teenagers throw from a leg on a leg the small bag filled with some balls. What is it? The name of this type of youth sport - soks.
There are many various assumptions of an origin of a soks, but it would be desirable to state one which is the most real. Game in America in 1972 - m to year when John Stalberger met Mike Marshall who kicked the self-made sack filled by beans was invented. This meeting took place in Oregon. John underwent knee operation not so long ago, and looked for a way to develop it. They immediately undertook game. Subsequently it pulled together them, and they with Marshall became good friends. Also two friends thought up the name - “ Hack the Sack “. Stalberger and Marshall were soon completely keen on game. Marshall hoped to advance soks in “ masses “. They in every possible way popularized a new sport until Mike Marshall had heart attack in a dream in 1975 - m to year. He died at the age of 28 years.
Stalberger shocked with death of the friend did not stop and continued to develop already fallen in love occupation. Further Stalberger thought up to beat off soks not only one leg, but also knees and various parts of a body.
Now soks develops in several directions. One of them - Footbag Net or Volley Sock when the ball falls through a grid. And the most difficult and beautiful direction - Fottbag Freestyle.
