The Trick Ladder or sport ladder, is a set list of tricks performed in order of steadily increasing difficulty. Trick ladders are aimed at less experienced yo-yoers and competitions usually do not allow people to compete in both the trick ladder and the main event to stop experienced yo-yoers dominating. At the World Yo-Yo Contest and USA national contest there are 2 lists, one handed and two handed to accommodate for players of different styles.

An innovative variation of the Trick Ladder, is being used at the Northeast Regionals Contest/Z-Games]. Instead of the list having 25 tricks, it is cut down to 20 tricks. Each participant chooses 10 tricks of his choice and he has one try at each trick. Each trick has a set amount of points, which you will be awarded if you are successfully able to complete the trick in one try. The tricks are set with an amount of points from the easiest having only 1 point, with the hardest having 10 points.
