The SA Pole Sports Federation (formerly the PFASA) has now been established for four years. In the pole fitness community a lot has happened in the last few years in South Africa and internationally.
The most notable achievements of the SAPSF so far:
The National Pole Sports Competition (NPSC)
2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and currently April 2017
The National Pole Sports Competition is an International Pole Sports Federation recognised competition. This means that the judging criteria and the selection process meets international standards for competitive pole sports. Last year three South African pole fitness athletes took part in the World Pole Sports Competition (IPSF). Sponsorship funds have been donated by the SAPSF to help South African athletes travel to England to compete. The IPSF are at the forefront of the action to make Pole Sports an event at the Olympic Games. The SAPSF are fast becoming an important part of this action, joining forces with the IPSF.
The SAPSF Pole Sports League informationis an event that is open to all students and instructors within SA’s pole fitness community, not just SAPSF members. The judging criteria, like the NPS Competition, will also be aligned with the IPSF’s system. This means that competitors will know that they are achieving a standard set by international benchmarks.
Money is raised for South African athletes by the SAPSF workshops and pole jams. We are also very grateful of the donations received by trusting pole fans of our pole fitness community. The ongoing support the SAPSF receives is not unnoticed. The SAPSF is, and will remain a Non-profit organisation.
2011; 2012; 2013; 2014; 2015, 2016 and August 2017
The biggest pole fitness charity showcase event to date, over R100,000 has been raised for South African charities. This is all thanks to a collaboration of over 15 different pole fitness studios, the incredible dedication and enthusiasm of students and pole fitness instructors is what makes Pole Unity a huge success each year. This event truly is a union of many Gauteng based South African studios.
