The Judging Panel NPSC15:
Two international head judges and a panel of South African judges that have been certified by the IPSF will be judging at the NPSC15.
The results will be moderated by the IPSF following the competition to check for consistent and fair judging.
The IPSF scoring system is broken down into four parts; Technical Presentation Bonus, Technical Presentation Deduction, Artistic and Choreography Presentation and Compulsory. Athletes will be judged in all four sections during their routine, therefore, the athlete who shows the most strength in all four sections will be awarded the most points as a final score. It is important an athlete incorporates all sections into their routine to be awarded the most points. The scoring system not only encourages and promotes a well-balanced routine but also a well-trained and well-rounded athlete. One spinning and one static pole will have to be used in the athlete’s routine.
