In October 2017, the International Pole Sport Federation (IPSF) obtained, after years of hard work, the recognition of Pole Sport as “Sport” from the GAISF (Global Alliance of International Sport Federations).This major step is the beginning of the recognition process of the national federations by their sport authorities in their own country.
In January 2018, the IPSF delivered to the Swiss Pole Sports Federation two certificates, allowing to communicate about Pole Sports to the regional and federal sport authorities:
- Certificate of recognition of the Swiss Pole Sports Federation as the official representative of IPSF activties and as governing body for Pole Sports in our country.
- Certificate attesting the ability of the Swiss Pole Sports Federation to organize the national and qualifiying Championships for the World Pole Sports Championships IPSF 2018.
In accordance with the goals defined by the SPSF in November 2017, the Committee will use those two documents in order to develop and progress to the recognition of Pole Sport in Switzerland.
