CHAMPIONSHIPS 2021

Mark Your Calendar!!

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, our 2021 National Championship will be held virtually on August 6-8, 2021.

Videos must be filmed at IPSF regulation compliant studios only.

Our goal is to certify at least one studio per province.

Studios must apply by emailing communications@canadianpolefederation.com. Before applying, please verify if your studio meets the minimum requirements. We will also be requiring a virtual tour of the space before accepting the studio as a viable filming location for athletes.

Studios that wish to be approved must apply before April 15th. It is the athlete's responsibility to ensure they have an approved studio to film at. Refunds will not be granted in the event that you cannot find an approved studio. 

We will be posting approved studios on our website as soon as they become available. We are aiming to certify a minimum of one studio per province. 

Each studio will charge a half-hour or full hour rental fee that will be standardized across Canada. The fee will be made public when approved studios are posted on our website.

Minimum requirements:

  • 3.5m – 4m poles (11.5-13.1 feet of usable pole) (of any material). If the poles used are less than 3.5 meters, the athlete will incur a deduction of one point for not using the full height of the pole.

  • For poles that are higher than 4 m, studios must prepare a safety video with doubles athletes so federation can make sure of the safety. Also, the 4 m line must be marked.

  • 2.5m – 3m distance between the poles (8.2-9.8 feet)

  • A minimum of a 2m distance (6.6 feet) on the outside of the poles to the walls

  • Poles should be able to be both on static and spinning

  • The studio should be well lit, and should have enough room for filming in landscape in such a way that the entire height of the poles are taken into account, as well as the entire “stage” area.

  • Camera should be set at 4-5 meters (13.1-16.4 feet) in front of the poles.

  • No other poles should be up in the studio.

  • Please ensure that both poles are in the frame.

  • 45 mm diameter poles must be used.

Please note that if you registered for the 2020 season and chose to transfer your registration to 2021, you are automatically registered in the same category, division and discipline (unless you changed age category in which case please email us).

All videos must be received by August 8th by 5pm Eastern Time.
