may 2023

The Countdown is on... 

It won't be long now until twirlers from around the world join together for the 2023 IBTF Nations Cup, World Majorettes & World Baton Twirling Championship in Liverpool. As athletes prepare, coaches fine tune, and officials coordinate, we would be remiss not to pause for a moment to simply celebrate this incredible place we are approaching as a sport. 

To think, thousands of athletes from all federations across the globe under one's simply amazing! Whether athletes are focusing on that all-catch, aspiring to get their perfect score, or dreaming of winning a prestigious gold medal in their chosen discipline, we must remember something incredible has already been achieved with the chance to compete for our countries at the international level. 

As the days draw near, please continue to explore and utilize the IBTF and World Baton 2023 websites to stay up to date!
