Anti Doping

From the 1st of April, 2013, the IPSF adopted the World Anti-Doping Code and began an education program for National Federations, athletes, coaches, and competition holders to enable Pole Sports to be a drug free environment.

From the 1st of August, 2013, the IPSF undertook a full anti-doping program for all athletes competing in national and international competitions accredited by the IPSF. This means that testing can occur at any time, not just over the time-frame of a competition. In-competition testing was launched in July, 2014 at the WPSC.
