BASIC OVERVIEW INFORMATION


These are the score cards used by the educated judges. These cards begin with the category descriptions and guidelines for scoring. Please note that these are written to the judges and the verbiage indicates such. For sanctioned competitions, there are to be 3 judges. The judges will be responsible for only ONE category of the score card. Competition Judging Categories will be as follows:

* ARTISTRY – 1 Judge = 20 Points Maximum Per Competitor (For Pole Art Only – the score card for the Artistry Judge is multiplied by 2, resulting in a potential high score of 40 points.)

* PRESENTATION – 1 Judge = 20 Points Maximum Per Competitor

* TECHNIQUE JUDGING – 2 Judges = As the competitions are focused on Pole Fitness, the score card for the Technique Judge is multiplied by 2, resulting in a potential high score of 40 points (does not apply to Pole Art- there will be one judge for technique and 2 for Artistry).

*Within this system a perfect score would be 80 points.
