    As an affiliate, you are either starting a casual sport juggling club, or you are going into business as the leader of a Sport Juggling organization either for your country, your city, or your school. As such, the efforts and achievements of the World Juggling Federation can be used to expedite your success. Below are some common questions affiliates have asked before signing on.

    Affiliate FAQ

    Setting yourself up as an affiliate is free. You can use free website services and/or social media to promote your organization, events, and agendas. You don’t have to have a business license to start. Competitions can be held at community centers, schools, outdoors in certain situations, local businesses, etc. You have creative freedom to find event space. And you can use the WJF’s Youtube channel to help promote sponsors within video of your events.
    No. You can run your club or organization as an individual. However you can also set up a business such as an LLC or non profit if you prefer to take advantage of the options available to different business structures.
    Affiliates are free to solicit donations, sponsorships, TV rights (in countries other than the US),and charge competition and event entry fees. The World Juggling Federation does not take any percentage of your revenue from those sources.
    The list of responsibilities is something to aspire and work toward. Affiliates are not expected to accomplish everything immediately but it’s just a road map of where you’re headed. How far you take it is up to you. The best way to start is to put together a list of goals in the order you think you can achieve them, create a timeline for achieving those goals, and try to stay on track but be prepared to reevaluate and adjust periodically based on your progress.
    You get out of it what you put into it. It can be rewarding and profitable, and with the WJF’s help and reputation affiliates will have a much easier time than Jason Garfield did with no reputation other than his own juggling abilities and a controversial character 🙂 You have to really want to help the sport juggling movement and all your effort has to come from that position. A lot of this work requires no money and just time and passion. You don’t need money to raise money. You need a solid plan and a way to communicate that plan to potential supporters.
