“We are extremely proud of all of the young polo players who have participated in our inaugural National Youth Tournament Series,” said Chrys Beal, the Junior Polo Committee Chair of the United States Polo Association. “Their level of skill and sportsmanship truly showcases the future of polo here in the United States, and demonstrates the impact that the development programs of the USPA and its member clubs are having.”
In an effort to help expand the sport among youth in the U.S., the Junior Polo Program’s mission is to cultivate and promote junior polo throughout the United States by providing the organizational structure to support junior polo clinics, tournaments, and international competition. Junior polo has seen a great deal of recent growth by partnering with the U.S. Pony Club and other youth equestrian organizations to develop new polo playing members of the Association.
