Pole Sport

Pole Sport is for athletes who can excel all around. Tricks, artistry, and execution are all judged in this competition. Athletes declare a set of moves from the Code of Points and then are judged based on their execution of those moves in addition to floor work, acro moves, and choreography. Do you have what it takes and are willing to work hard to show it? Pole Sport is for you.  

Judging Systems is based on the POSA POLE SPORT CODE OF POINTS.

No props, no shoes. Lyrics are allowed. Costumes must meet the dress code standards set forth in POSA Pole Sport Code of Points.

Athletes can advance to The POSA World Pole Championships and CSIT World Games.

Competition is a great chance to progress, have new experiences, and possibly even advance.

Competing in Semi-Finals gives you a chance to create a routine and have it judged by our Certified Judges. This valuable feedback will give you a competitive advantage if you wish to go on to Nationals. 

You do not have to compete at Semi-Finals in order to compete in Nationals. But it is very highly suggested!

But no matter what your reason, competition can be a wonderful opportunity. We hope to see many NEW athletes join the competition this year because of the ease of competing virtually. 

Grow as an Athlete

There are a few things like preparing for a competition to help you grow as an athlete.

Experience the transformation of going from a recreational poler to a true athlete by signing up and competing.

Prepare for Nationals

By competing at Semi-Finals, you will push yourself to develop a routine early in the competition season.

You will get valuable feedback from the judges on your performance and then you will be able to apply that feedback to your routine for Nationals!

By the time you take the stage at Nationals, you can feel confident that you have dedicated the time and effort to make the most of your routine. 

Showcase your Hard Work

Chances are if you're reading this that you are pretty passionate about pole. You probably put a lot of time and effort into what you do.

Competitions can be a chance to showcase all that hard work to a broader audience. And since this one is going to be virtual, you can share with anyone around the world. 

Convenience of Virtual

Take advantage of the benefits of virtual competition. There aren't any travel costs, you don't need time off work. Also, you can video as many times as you want.

This is a great way for new athletes to comfortably get into the world of competition from the safety of their own homes/home studios. 

Be a part of History

When you compete with the USPSF, you're making history. We are recognized by the US Sports Council as the governing body of pole sport. We are on a mission to grow pole sport.

So when you take the stage for a USPSF competition, you're helping to write a page in history books of pole!

If you go to Nationals, you could qualify for the POSA World Championship

Pole Sport, Pole Art, and Aerial Athletes in Amateur and Competitive divisions can all advance to the POSA World Championships.

The top three of all age divisions (besides JV) will get a spot on TEAM USA. 

This is your chance to compete on the world stage with the best of the best while still competing comfortably in the category that is right for you. 

Compete at the CSIT World Games

Athletes that compete at the 2022 POSA Pole Sport World Championships will have the chance to qualify at Worlds to compete at the CSIT World Games.

This is truly an opportunity you don't want to miss! 

Have Fun

This is, after all, for you.

Competition can lead to new friends, new experiences, and ultimately, new joy.
