Connor Deal

Aiken, SC

A member of the USPA since 2010, Connor initially began playing polo to help a friend fill a space on an Interscholastic team. Shortly after he was hooked and three years later ended up winning the 2013 Open Interscholastic Championships! Coming from a riding background, Connor grew up fox hunting and helping his mom teach riding lessons. Currently a member of Team USPA, Connor also works with the USPA as a Clinician and works as an assistant coach to Tiger Kneece for the new Interscholastic Boys team at University of South Carolina, Aiken.

What has been one of your favorite teaching memories?

“I love seeing students’ progress. A lot of teaching is not about what you say but how you encourage. I love seeing kids especially break through barriers in learning just from encouragement.”
