About Interscholastic Polo

The Interscholastic polo program is a competitive league in which high school students play against other polo teams in their region and across the country. Players must meet their school’s academic standards in order to compete. Interscholastic polo is played in the arena under the official USPA Arena rules and I/I Tournament Conditions. As in all I/I polo, the interscholastic league is played using a “split string,” where each team plays all of the horses provided for the game. Interscholastic players are welcomed into a wonderful network of polo professionals, volunteers, and other players their age. The interscholastic program provides an opportunity for players to compete in a national league against their peers.
