The first National Youth Tournament Series (NYTS) Qualifier of the 2018 season will be held on January 20- 21 at the Eldorado Polo Club in Indio, California, in conjunction with the Player Performance Analysis (PPA) Clinic hosted by the USPA Polo Development, LLC. With a vibrant winter low and medium goal tournament series and strong amateur player participation, Kris Bowman, Executive Director of Polo Development LLC is eager to bring the PPA program to the West Coast. Amateurs and professionals alike can benefit from the swing analysis, riding pattern analysis and pre-game warm up routine. Former 7-goal professional Tiger Kneece and senior Team USPA member Mason Wroe will be on hand along with USPA staff to offer instruction and guidance for players and instructors to utilize this cutting-edge technology designed to benefit players of all levels. Instructors will become familiar with the PPA program so that they may bring the technology to students and players at their home clubs.
The USPA Polo Performance Analysis sessions will be taking place at Eldorado Polo Club and are open to any player rated 0+ goals outdoors and youth players competing in the NYTS division, limited to 12 players each day, slots available on a first-come-first-served basis, contact Amanda Snow to schedule your session- email@example.com.
Eldorado Polo Club also invites local youth players with a minimum of a B handicap and born after 1/1/1999 to participate in the NYTS qualifier. The NYTS program was established to provide youth players the opportunity to compete against their peers. All-Stars are selected by an appointed committee at each qualifier. All-Stars are then eligible to be selected for one of the four mixed zone teams or two female regional teams to compete in the NYTS Championships and East vs. West Invitational over Labor Day weekend.
