I CHOOSE POLE SPORT!

 

Pole Sport includes artistic elements but is based more heavily on athleticism and technical merit, and judged by an original Code of Points in line with other Olympic standard sports such as gymnastics, diving, and ice skating.

WHAT DIVISION DO I CHOOSE?

​Divisions are based on your pole as well as your previous competitive experience. Below are the different divisions but please see the Code of Points for more details and exclusions:

  • Amateur - Athletes who have basic experience and who are able to choose elements only with lowest technical values, may apply to participate in the Amateur division.

  • Professional - Athletes who have a good amount of experience and who are able to choose elements with higher technical value may apply to compete in the Professional division.

  • Elite - The Elite division is for top athletes who are able to choose elements with the highest technical value, and who strive to compete with other top athletes and become a part of their national team to represent their country.
