Find the answers to frequently asked questions here. If you are still unsure email comps@physipolestudios.com.au

If I am different levels in spin and static pole that put me in different categories which category do I enter?

You will enter the higher category of the 2 for example if you are intermediate static and advanced spin you will enter the advanced category.

Are human props allowed?
Human props are allowed as long as they do not touch the pole or aerials apparatus.

What shoes are allowed?
This is up to you! You can have bare feet or any shoes that will not damage the poles or aerial equipment.

Can I bring my own aerial apparatus?
Yes you can! There will be your studio apparatus available for your heats and varied apparatus available at finals, please advise in your entry form if you would to provide your own and ensure you have receipts/compliance/testing paperwork for the equipment or use the studios.

Am I allowed to put grip on the pole?
Can be applied to the pole by the pole cleaners you will be able to issue your preferences either at entry or after your run through on the day of competition.

Am I allowed to have my routine filmed or photographed by my family?
Photos and videos will be taken at the event but your friends and family are allowed to take their own videos and pictures also.

What tricks am I allowed to put in my routine?
Must be in syllabus for that apparatus in the correct division you are entering, eg if you are in beginner you are allowed to complete syllabus skills up to Pre-Intermediate even if you are only in Beginner. Elite are able to complete any skill. Variations of syllabus tricks will be allowed if they still fit that level of difficulty, if you are unsure please email comps@physipolestudios.com.au

Will other competitors be allowed to have the same song as me?
No duplicates of songs will be accepted for heats this will be first in best dressed so make sure to get your entry in early to secure your song. This is harder to control for finals as not everyone from heats will go through to finals so there may be song duplicates at finals.
If you enter then decide to change your song make sure to email your new submission to comps@physipolestudios.com.au but be aware this could be declined if the song has already been chosen.

Will there be food provided/available?
You are responsible to make sure you have your own food/snacks at heats and finals.

Do I need to organise my own Hair/Make up?
This is your responsibility for heats, you can bring your own but we ask that they leave the venue no later than 30 minutes before doors open to the public. Please confirm with your studio any further time restrictions.
For finals, we may organise a hair and makeup artist for you to utilise at a cost. This will be discussed and organised in a closed Facebook group for final competitors.

What classifies me in the semi-pro division?
This category is for anyone who has previously placed while competing at an external competition.
There is no timeline or level on when you placed (it may be three years ago in a much lower level to what you are now), as it’s not about the level you were or the competition you competed in, it’s about the level of comp experience this competitor will now have.
If you had only placed in a pole competition, you would not be semi-pro for the aerials competition, and vice versa.
