Have Your Moment: January Updates

Happy New Year! Check out details below on the latest updates.


After Dark: Category Descriptions Update, New Events, and Road to Nationals

  • We have updated the category descriptions which can be found here. You can also enjoy example videos to provide a visual representation of the spirit of the category.

  • We have added our After Dark categories to our PSO Gateway and PSO Southeast events.

  • After Dark Road to Nationals

    • For Artistic Qualifier events that have After Dark Categories, US After Dark Winners will have the ability to qualify for Nationals.

    • Level 5 After Dark categories will each have a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winner.

    • The winner with highest overall score will qualify for a spot at U.S. National Artistic Pole Championship finals.


Sandbagging Policies

  • Our definition of sandbagging is someone who goes down two levels from their actual skill level, in order to gain an unfair advantage against others.

  • If you have a concern about another competitor, we ask that you notify PSO a minimum of 6 weeks before the competition so that we can process the concern. This ensures all competitors have adequate time to prepare their routines.


X-Stage Removal

  • Due to the low usage of the practice pole at the day of the event, we will be removing this from our events going forward.

  • We are now welcoming Pole Testing midday during the breaks (as time permits) on top of the usual Pole Testing times.

  • Each break will be noted as such on the Day of Event Schedule.
