USPA PROGRAMS

YOUNG PLAYER OPPORTUNITY (YPO) GRANT

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.

HOW IT WORKS

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.

Here is the process:
