The IPSF has developed a three-year plan for qualifications for new pole disciplines to introduce each new discipline throughout the pole community and evolve the standards required of an IPSF discipline in accordance with SportAccord and International Olympic Committee criteria.

 

The highly anticipated ARTISTIC POLE will make its debut during the 2017/2018 competition season with Federations and Endorsed Competitions ramping up inclusion of this more artistic version of Pole in their National and Regional competitions. The First Annual World Artistic Pole Championships will be held in July 2018 in the Netherlands during World Pole Weekend.

 

Artistic Pole, perhaps the softer more artistically inclined sibling of Pole Sports, encourages creativity and emboldens freedom of expression with more emphasis on artistic interpretation and is judged by the newly created Freestyle Pole Series Rules, which does not include a Code of Points, but relies more heavily on art, choreography and musicality.
