Become a certified pole sports pole art judge with the US Pole Sports Federation Judges Training

Pole Sports and Arts World Federation (POSA)  Judges Training – USA

Our training program establishes the standards for our judging panel for all Pole Sport events under the International Federation of POSA. The POSA World Federation needs to ensure that judges fully understand the rules and requirements of the Code of Points along with the Ethic Standards of the POSA. 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 USPSF and POSA will provide constructive, educational, and informed feedback to each participant. The final exam at the end of the course is required for all judges and must meet a passing grade to become an official judge of any federated event.Once you have passed the final exam and been certified as an official POSA Judge, you will be able to apply to judge the USPSF Championships 2018 as well as the POSA-Pole Sport World Championships 2018.

Each year you will be required to renew your certificate and keep up on the professional development as well as participating in a judging role at a national or international POSA Competition.
