Required information[]

The following information must be included for each record.

The category of objects/type of juggling

Five categories are recognized:

  • Toss juggling with rings (any flat, roughly circular objects, including plates and hoops)
  • Toss juggling with clubs (any long, roughly cylindrical objects, including sticks and batons)
  • Juggling multiple diabolos on a string (with two subcategories: high and low patterns)

No multiplexing is allowed in any of these records. Bounce juggling records must be done on a solid, flat, horizontal surface with each throw bouncing only once before it's caught. A ball that bounces twice before it is caught is considered to have been dropped. Since a stable pattern can be maintained by simply pushing the balls slightly to redirect them, without actually gripping them, any touch of a ball with a hand (while no drops have been made) may be considered a catch in bounce juggling.

The number of objects used

This must be the actual number used to set the record - a record set using 11 balls would not be considered the record for 10 balls, even if 10 of the 11 balls were juggled for more catches than the existing 10 ball record. Records listed on this wiki must be done with a greater number of objects than the number of hands used (or for diabolo records, the number of strings used, with each person using one string).

The duration of the record

According to JISCON rules, all solo runs up to 250 catches are measured by the number of catches. For records measured by catches to be listed on this wiki, the number of catches must be at least as many as the number of objects used.

For toss juggling and bounce juggling records, catches may be made with the juggler's hands or any other body parts, but they have to be catches of throws that were made with the hands. When a catch is made using a part of the body other than the hands, it is considered as if it was caught by the hand that would normally catch it at that time in the pattern. The juggler may not use any pockets, nets, or other apparatus to catch objects.

For diabolo records, only catches made with the string are counted, but they can be catches of throws that were made with the string, or with the hands (when starting a run). In other (non-diabolo) records for juggling with manipulators other than the hands, catches are only counted if the object was both thrown and caught by one of the manipulators specified to be used in that pattern. A record for juggling using only the feet would exclude any catches made with a hand, and any catches of throws made with a hand.

Catches are counted only while no objects have been dropped. JISCON defines a drop as a failure to catch an object that, as a result, hits the ground or any foreign object. A drop is considered to have happened at the moment the object should have been caught or touched, not when it hits the ground. For diabolo records, catches are counted only while no diabolos have been dropped or caught with the hands.

Any object that leaves a hand after collecting has begun is considered to be dropped at the moment it's released, so no subsequent catches will be counted. Collecting begins when an object lands in a hand that is already holding another object. (Low diabolo patterns are different — multiple diabolos may be on the string at the same time, and this is not considered collecting.)

Solo runs longer than 250 catches are compared by time, measured from the moment the first throw leaves the hand to the moment the last valid catch touches the hand. Fractions of a second are rounded down.

The source of the record

To be considered valid, a record must be proved by video evidence, available either to the general public or to the Juggling Information Service Committee on Numbers Juggling (JISCON). The juggling pattern should be visible in the video for the full duration of the record. For hours-long runs, records certified by Guinness World Records may also be listed on the wiki, without public video evidence. A link must be provided either to a video of the record, or to the website of the world record organization showing that the record has been validated.

Unverified claims (records with no available video evidence) are listed separately. If there is a verified world record listed on this page for a given number of objects, any claim that equals or beats that record is listed. If there is no verified world record for a given number of objects, only the best claim for that number is listed. A link should be provided to a statement of the record, including all the required information listed above.

Additional information[]

The following information is not required for categorizing, comparing, or verifying records, but should be included if possible for each record.

The name of the record-holder

If there is a tie for a record, all the people who hold the same record should be listed.

The exact type of prop used

If a record is known to have been done with a certain variation of the three standard toss juggling props, such as plates, hoops, sticks, or batons, the type of prop should be specified.

The year the record was set

If the exact year of a record is unknown, the year that the video was published or submitted for verification (or for unverified records, the year that the claim was made) may be used instead.
