CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
We are looking for several persons (at least 3) willing to be certified as an IPSF Judge between November 2017 and Feburary 2018!
We just announced it : our national federation is now a member of the International Pole Sports Federation (IPSF). The next step for your ad interim Committee is to organize the Swiss Pole Sports & Artistic Pole Championship 2018 (the date will be announced soon).
Those Pole Sports & Artistic Pole competitions will allow the best swiss athletes to compete against each other, in order to qualify for the World Pole Sports & World Artistic Pole Championships 2018. But without swiss IPSF certified judges, we won’t be able to organise those championships !
Indeed, the IPSF directives about the organisation of national competitions require to have at least 2 national certified IPSF judges. At the moment, Switzerland has not any certified judge ! This is why it’s urgent to form swiss judges able to judge national competitions.
The certification is composed by 3 levels, but only Level 1 and Level 2 are mandatory to judge a national competition. The certification is available in English or Spanish, at fixed dates (see below), by e-learning. You will have to attend groups online training sessions and to complete individual multiple choices quizzes.
In total, the certification requires 12h of e-learning sessions, completed by individual learning and revision.
Next dates for the e-learning sessions in English :
LEVEL 1 : November 18th 2017 or January 20th 2018 (Be careful, you must sign up at least 7 days before the desired date !)
Price : 40 CHF
LEVEL 2 : February 3th and 4th 2018
Price : 165 CHF
This certification is open to any people interested in the development of Pole Sports in Switzerland and with a good knowledge of pole at an intermediate or advanced level (you don’t have to be an athlete but you must know the technical vocabulary of pole).
For the moment, the SPSF cannot pay for the certification of the futur judges. We deeply hope that in a short future the SPSF will be able to provide a financial support for this kind of training and will, of course, keep you posted about this.
Interested ? Contact your national federation before October 20th 2017 and have a look at the IPSF webpage for additionnal informations about the certification.
