About Intercollegiate Polo

The USPA Intercollegiate program provides students a venue to have their first polo experience and seasoned players a place to continue competitive regular season and tournament play during their time at university. Intercollegiate polo is played in the arena under the official USPA Arena Rules and specific I/I and Arena Tournament Conditions. As is all I/I polo, the intercollegiate league is played using a “split string.” During their time in the program, many players are given the opportunity to participate in leadership and horse management roles within their student run clubs; providing real life learning experiences in the polo world.

There are 41 established USPA Intercollegiate Polo Programs representing 15 men’s teams and 26 women’s teams across four regions of the United States. Competing in separate divisions, the top men’s and women’s teams battle for a chance to advance to the National Intercollegiate Championship.

"In regards to the kind of polo that college offers, it definitely teaches you about playing as a team, playing hard, and learning how to ride dozens of different horses." – Felipe Viana, UVA '13
