Making it to the Stage is a Huge Deal

Making it to the Stage is a Huge Deal

Competing within the pole community is a fantastic opportunity to push yourself as an artist, performer and athlete. It takes time, money, dedication, and will. The ultimate goal for many that choose to compete is, let’s face it, to place. It is incredibly uplifting to be able to bring home a medal as a tangible reminder of all the hard work that was put into making a performance stand out and shine.  While placing is a wonderful goal to work towards, it’s also easy to forget the amazing…

Moving Up Levels Update for 2019

What is the change?

You have to level up within 12 months of placing 1, 2, or 3 in a division with 8 or more competitors. This applies to all competitions in 2018.

For example, if you place 3rd in Level 3 at 2018 PSO Northwest on November 2-3, you have until November 1, 2019 to compete in Level 3. After that, you will need to move up to Level 4 for the next 12 months.

This rule replaces the older versions of leveling up requirements.

Why the change?

We had a lovely competitor who offered this suggestion recently, so we’re doing it! Their very smart observation were that competitors performing at the end of a calendar year are forced to move up much faster than those performing at the beginning of a calendar year. This will even it out.

It’s also more simple to explain and understand!

Why so fast?

We wanted to make sure all of the events for 2019 are included, and the deadlines for Triangle and Golden Gate are happening very soon.

What happens if I need to make a change?

Login to your Portal account and update your Level! You can make changes until 1 week after the event registration deadline.
