It is with great sadness that the USPA announces the loss of former 5-goal player and USPA Professional Umpire Rick Sears. Rick joined the USPA Umpires, LLC program in the 1996-1997 season and umpired many major tournaments throughout the years. He was also the recipient of the 2003 Polo Training Foundation (PTF) Carlton Beal Umpire of the Year Award. According to USPA Head Umpire Instructor Steve Lane, "He was one of the top umpires for the USPA for a very long time. He meant a lot to the Umpires, LLC and the Association, and he will be greatly missed." 

Rick spent the last few years umpiring in California and was greatly loved by the polo community in both Santa Barbara and Indio. Empire Polo Club in Indio, California, has set up a GoFundMe account to help the family of Rick during this difficult time. Donations can be made by clicking here.
