USPA PROGRAMS

LEGACY POLO SERIES

Legacy Series.

The USPA Legacy Series stemmed from an idea to rename and restructure the 10-14 Goal USPA Regional Classics. The idea morphed into developing a series to increase the demand for medium goal tournaments and develop a stronger brand value that USPA Clubs are eager to host. The USPA developed the idea to recognize Memorial Tournaments from individual clubs to tie the rich history of the sport and create a prestigious series that unites clubs around the country.

Criteria:

  • Clubs are to host a tournament within the range of 10-16 Goals, depending on the region and the demand in the area. Ex: 10-14 goals and 12-16 goal level
