By purchasing WHEA license you join the membership of the association and commit to the rules of the association along with anti-doping- and competition contract, which you find in the dicipline rules page. The yearly prices of the licenses can be found to the bottom part of this page.

Our licences are purchased from the system and later on this page you will find info about the different license types. The commitment to the anti-doping- and competition contract is done in the system – in the last part before paying the license by clicking (x) to the box (the link opens to the contract page) and by purchasing the license you approve the rules and the contract.

After this, the license is renewated each year in January. We don´t have the opportunity to flew from the 3 month rule, so please make sure you have the license on time. The rule is for juniors in pole sport also.

If you are a member of some other federation, which is committed to the WADA – rules (for example IPF or its national federation) we read their membership time for your benefit and there is no 3 months rule, so you can compete straight after purchasing your WHEA license.
