Applications for the Middle School League are now open! Young players who love polo should compete in the Middle School League tournament(s), eligible for players in grades 5-8. The Middle School Program is entering its third year and is growing faster than ever. This year the program is excited to announce 12 tournaments taking place across the United States from New York to Hawaii!
The goal of the Middle School League is to provide a venue for younger players to gain more tournament experience, while allowing them to play against competitors of equal ability. Eligible players must be enrolled in an academic program as a 5th through 8th grade student and will be entered as an individual. Players are responsible for bringing or leasing appropriate horses for the tournament, as the split-string format will not be used. Player applications, general releases and fees are due by September 15th.
