POLE IS EVOLVING
POLE IS EVOLVING
The exhilarating Ultra Pole, the first of the new disciplines, was designed to encourage innovation, embolden creativity, elevate freedom of expression, and escalate ultimate athleticism to attract the most radical and innovative athletes yet. Judged by the new Freestyle Pole Series Rules Ultra Pole is an ultimate trick battle enabling the athlete to trick out against other competitors in battle style rounds expressing the ultimate in acrobatic and creative inspiration and skills.
Adding an element of crowd participation in judging takes this discipline to new levels in crowd frenzy and the debut of the Inaugural Ultra Pole World Championships at the 2016 World Pole Sports Championships was met with resounding success by an exhilarated and astounded crowd. This is where new moves are born and where innovation lives.
The IPSF has developed a three year plan for qualifications for new pole disciplines to introduce each one throughout the pole community and evolve the standards required of an IPSF discipline.
