POLO DEVELOPMENT INITIATIVE (PDI)

The Polo Development Initiative (PDI) program is designed to facilitate the growth of polo by empowering USPA Polo Clubs and approved USPA Polo Schools with financial awards (up to $10,000) dedicated to building business momentum at the club level. The success of the sport depends on success at the club level, thus it is the intent of the PDI program to offer financial assistance to ignite growth initiative imperative for eventual sustainability.

Growing polo at the grassroots level is a top priority of the Polo Development, LLC. The PDI program does just that by awarding reimbursement funds to clubs and polo schools whose goals are to develop and retain polo players. Clubs and schools receiving PDI funding are the driving force for USPA membership growth, and the funds are designed to elevate polo schools from good to great and building a sound business model for future growth. The future growth of the sport is predicated on the sustainability of grassroots polo. The PDI program aims to promote that sustainability.

In September of 2018, the Club and Membership Development Committee established an Ad Hoc committee to conduct strategic planning for the Polo Development Initiative for 2019 and beyond. The goal of the strategic planning process is to review and amend the PDI program to have a greater impact on the growth and development of the sport at the grassroots level and sustain USPA clubs as the foundation for future growth.

To properly implement the changes taking effect in 2019 the 2019 PDI deadline is being pushed back from December 31, 2018 to January 31, 2019. A new application and guidelines will be available after January 1. This will allow for clubs to properly digest and plan out their application accordingly.

Please contact Justin Powers, jpowers@uspolo.org, if you have any questions regarding the deadline and/or the strategic planning process for PDI.

How Do I Apply?

The USPA’s Polo Development Initiative is a reimbursable program that offers awards up to $10,000 for USPA polo clubs and polo schools that are in good standing with the USPA. Anyone associated with an accredited USPA Polo Club or Polo School can fill out the application. Since the PDI program is a reimbursable program, the club or polo school first spends their own money on pre-approved items, then is reimbursed by submitting an invoice, also located on this webpage.

The 2018 PDI Application is no longer available for submission. For those who applied, your application is next submitted to the PDI Sub-Committee for review with awards announced mid-March 2018. For any further questions please contact Justin Powers at jpowers@uspolo.org
