Official Trainings & Workshops


Our training programs establish the standards for our judging panel. The IPSAF needs to ensure that judges fully understand the rules and requirements of the Code of Points along with the Ethic Standards of the IPSAF, as it is crucial to the success of each of our athletes and their partnering federations. The judges course offers an introduction to the skills a pole sport judge will use during any federation competition. This course includes general information on competition rules, regulations, and common movements. Once the modules have been reviewed each aspiring judge will test his or her skills on a final examination. These skills should be reviewed and practiced regularly. After attending a personal training class, the IPSAF will provide constructive, educational, and informed feedback to each participant.
