The IPSF Certificate provides a recognised stamp of quality coaching across pole sport across the world.
The IPSF has raised the profile of pole sports coaching and judges training by establishing best practice coaching standards. We now have an internationally recognized framework of qualifications for coach and judge education developed and endorsed by the International Pole Sports Federation (IPSF).
The introduction of IPSF Certificate has shifted the culture of coaching in the pole sports world. A balance has been created between the traditional pole ‘what to coach’ skills (mainly focusing on the technical aspects of pole) with greater emphasis on ‘how to coach’ skills (e.g. better two way communication, an understanding of different coaching and learning styles, continually reviewing, adapting and improving coaching sessions) leading to well planned effective coaching.
