Taking the Judge's training will set you apart as a serious and educated coach in pole sports.
Coaches are invited to take the complete Judge's training and then test.
Even if you never plan to judge, this judge's certification will show that you understand the rules and know what it takes to help your athletes succeed in pole sport.
