In April of 2018, the USPA Junior Polo Committee created a special fund called the Young Player Opportunity Fund in order to assist youth players seeking opportunity to improve in the sport of polo. The YPO Funding program is intended to provide funding for youth players to use for opportunities that will cultivate, train, develop and educate, 19 and under American Polo Players in effort to enhance their playing ability at a young age.
This fund will be used as a tool to accomplish the USPA stated goal of enhancing the skills of young players that will ultimately produce the best high goal professional and amateur polo players in the world.
The USPA’s YPO Grant is a reimbursement program. Its purpose is to enhance the level of polo that is regularly available to the individual and encourage a thoughtful and creative plan toward helping a player improve in their playing and/or horsemanship abilities.
Applicant and parent must sign the 2022 YPO Funding Guidelines in order for application to be reviewed.

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.
