Two more National Youth Tournament Series Tournaments (NTYS) are in the books! Empire Polo Club in Indio, California, and Being the Change Polo Club in Phoenix, Arizona, each hosted a NYTS Qualifier over Presidents Day Weekend. Excitement for the NYTS program continues to grow. In addition to the four NYTS National Championship Zone teams, two all-female teams will be selected to compete in the East vs. West Invitational. The NYTS season continues through August 1. Individual players are encouraged to contact their local club to sign up.
The National Youth Tournament Series Program was established to provide youth players the opportunity to compete against their peers in USPA-sanctioned outdoor tournaments. At each qualifier, All-Stars are selected by an appointed committee. All-Stars are then eligible to be selected for one of the four open zone teams or two female regional teams to compete in the NYTS Championships and East vs. West Invitational over Labor Day weekend. The NYTS qualifier has been designed for upper-intermediate to advanced youth players, those capable of holding a minimum of a “B” handicap.

The suspension of USPA Tournaments and Events will be lifted for USPA Member Clubs in locales where hosting polo matches and tournaments is permitted under applicable state and local laws, executive orders and similar decrees. 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. We are preparing a detailed list of best practices for USPA Member Clubs as they return to hosting USPA Tournaments and Events and plan to circulate these guidelines within the next week. We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation closely and will notify you if we determine a different course of action is necessary.Read More
