Pole Sports and the International Pole & Aerial Sports Federation (IPSF) has just received news that a further 2 year extension has been granted regarding its Observer Status with he Global Association of International Federations (GAISF) which could one day pave the way to International Olympic Committee (IOC) recognition and perhaps Olympic Games inclusion for our amazing athletes.
After just 10 short years as an organised federation and only 2 years as a documented sport, the IPSF have rapidly evolved Pole from a few thousand fans to millions of followers and practitioners around the world, giving all ages from 5 to as fit as you feel the opportunity to get fit the alternative way.
In order for Pole to grow we need to showcase our sport and its athletes to the grater sporting community and the International media in China in 2020. Think how Surfing, Skateboarding and Sport Climbing did it....All of them funky, exciting and alternative, all of them attractive those wishing to reignite their passion for a healthy lifestyle.
We need approximately £10,000 to take our community to the next step cementing Pole as a sport to be reckoned with. The kind donations will be allocated in the following ways:
* Funding athletes and experts on our sport to attend the SportAccord annual convention where over 200 sports will take part in the largest global gathering of sports around the world.
*Fund athletes to take part in demonstrations, competitions and discussions promoting pole and its future as a recognised sport
* Fund team kit and team accommodation for athletes from around the world
* Fund media and promotions within China and the world helping to promote Pole as a relevant, exciting, young sport that will attract a huge following
Our deadline is 1st March 2020 and we hope you can help our team of volunteers promote develop our sport even further than the amazing accomplishments we have already achieved.
Thank you from us all at the IPSF and its wider community!!!
