Australian Pole Sports Federation

Welcome to the Australian Pole Sports Federation!

We are a not-for-profit federation dedicated to promoting Pole as an athletic sport. Our aims include:  

  1. Providing the pathway for Australian pole athletes to qualify for the World Pole Sports Championships (WPSC). 
  2. Achieving recognition of pole as a sport with the Sports Australia and the Australian Olympic Committee, enabling our Australian athletes to enter the Olympics when pole reaches this ultimate goal.
  3. Bringing together Australian pole athletes as a community, supporting one another in our passion for pole sports. 
  4. Promoting this fitness activity, which incorporates physical and artistic skills, throughout the age span, from kids to masters.

The APSF is a  proud member of the International Pole Sports Federation (IPSF) who governs pole internationally, by setting in place a structured competition, coaching and education format that has been accepted by international sport governing bodies. The IPSF has been awarded Observer member status of the Global Association of International Federations (GAISF), and are Signatories of the World Anti-Doping Association (WADA).  The goal of the IPSF and the APSF is for the Olympic committee to recognise Pole as an official sport and in turn eventually become part of the Olympic Games.
