Welcome to the bi-monthly International Baton Twirling Federation Newsletter.
Spinning into the Future of Baton Twirling. 

Since our last issue... 

The past several months have challenged the world in so many ways. In the world of baton twirling, we have had to make significant decisions that impact the hard work and dedication of our athletes - putting safety and well being ahead of all else. 

However, like always, our sport shines even in the darkest of moments. 
  • #apartbuttogether circled the globe and brought reassurance in a time of need. 
  • World Baton Twirling Day 2020 had an incredible response. Thank you to each and every athlete who participated. 
  • "Go Long" videos and social media challenges have encouraged twirlers young and old to pick up their batons. 
Until we can be together again, continue to lift one another up through this sport we all know and love and check out our most recent blog post on the IBTF-BatonTwirling.Org Website: A Message of Hope To All Baton Twirling Athletes, Coaches, and Officials. 

Coming up next... 

Please join us for a live informational webinar with members of the IBTF Executive Committee! 

IBTF Executive Committee will answer questions about the vision for IBTF, upcoming competitions, qualification processes/categories and more. 

Only 90 registrants may attend the live Zoom Webinar, but the webinar will also be shown live via the IBTF Youtube, too!  
Note: For time zone convenience, we ask our friends from Australia and Japan to join us for the North American Informational Webinar.
