The USPA Middle League is back for its fifth year! Young players in grades five through eight are eligible to compete in thirteen tournaments spanning the country from Connecticut to Hawaii.
The goal of the USPA Middle School League is to provide a venue for young players to gain tournament experience, while allowing them to play against competitors of equal ability. Eligible players must be enrolled in an academic program as a fifth, sixth, seventh or eighth grade student and will be entered as an individual. Players are responsible for bringing or leasing appropriate horses for the tournaments, as the split-string format will not be used.
Individuals interested in participating in this year’s Middle School League can find more information on the program, including registration, HERE. Please contact I/I Tournament Manager Emily Dewey at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions, or if your club is interesting in hosting a middle school tournament.

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
