US Pole Sports Federation Presents Pole Art America 2017

The U.S. Pole Sports Federation is pleased to announce the first Pole Art America – happening March 24th, 2017 at the University of North Florida, Jacksonville in the Robinson Theater.

Pole Art America was created to promote creativity and innovation in the pole community. We hope to attract international athletes from around the world to come share their talents and skills with the World. Witt this competition we encourage athletes to show their artistic and creative abilities in additional to their athleticism  along with sportsmanship.

The USPSF and International Pole Sport & Art Federation (IPSAF) scoring system is broken down into two parts: Artistic Section & Technical/Execution Section. Athletes will be judged in both sections during their routine therefore the athlete who shows the highest level of artistry and execution will be awarded the most points as a final score. The final score is a combination of the artistic section, and the technical / execution section. In addition to those two sections athletes will also be scored on appreciated elements and originality. It is important that an athlete incorporates all sections into their routine to be awarded the most points. This scoring system not only encourages and promotes a balance of a highly artistic and a technically sound athlete. The top three elite athletes in each division will move on to the IPSAF Pole Art Championships 2018.

  • Women’s International Elite (Ages 18 – 39)
