The USPA Armed Forces Committee, in an effort to increase participation in Military polo, has received Board-approved funds to be used to reimburse certain expenses for USPA member clubs that host the following tournaments:
National Commander-in-Chief Cup - Amount Reimbursed: $2,500
Circuit Military Event* - Amount Reimbursed: $750
*There are four Circuit Military events (General Patton, General Brown, Admiral Nimitz and General Puller) that are eligible for this reimbursement program.
Requirements: All tournaments are subject to approval by your Circuit Governor or the USPA Tournament Committee.
• These funds are in addition to any other available USPA funds (umpire, marketing, arena, etc).
• For Circuit events you must have a minimum of three teams competing in the event to be eligible for this reimbursement.
• For National events a minimum of four teams must compete in the event to be eligible for this reimbursement.
• These funds are limited and will be approved on a first come first served basis. In general, these funds are to be used to cover expenses that other USPA programs do not cover; so can use for marketing, EMT, announcer, etc., not for Umpires, Players or Winning Team trophies.
The deadline for the Military Incentive Program is January 6, 2023. For more information, or to apply, contact USPA Tournament Manager Kaila Dowd at email@example.com.
Effective Date: Saturday, May 16, 2020
The suspension of USPA Tournaments and Events will be lifted for USPA Member Clubs in locales where hosting polo matches and tournaments is permitted under applicable state and local laws, executive orders and similar decrees. The USPA Member Clubs in these locales are encouraged to follow all such requirements of their state and local authorities with respect to polo operations. In addition, we also encourage all USPA Member Clubs to take the precautions recommended by the CDC. We are preparing a detailed list of best practices for USPA Member Clubs as they return to hosting USPA Tournaments and Events and plan to circulate these guidelines within the next week. We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation closely and will notify you if we determine a different course of action is necessary.Read More
