Pro status and Pro payments
- “Qualifier Professional” will now be called Championship Level 5 at the regional level. The first place winners of the US women’s and men’s divisions will qualify for the US National Pole Championships, and receive their Pro status with PSO.
- At Nationals, all Pro competitors receive a $250 payment for performance. Winners of the Pro event will receive additional prize money.
- Paying all the Pros isn’t new, but we haven’t really done a great job at publicizing it before now. These payments and cash prizes are the reason why the regional events cost more for the Qualifier Professional/Championship Level 5 division.
