Ten youth players ages 14-19 participated in six weeks of elite athlete training sponsored by the USPA in Sheridan, Wyoming, this summer culminating in the Archie MacCarty Tournament at Flying H Polo Club.

Young players from all over the country were selected by mentors who taught Young Player Outreach clinics and from Intercollegiate/Interscholastic All-Stars representing California, Tennessee, South Carlolina, Wyoming, Kentucky, Texas, Florida and Washington. Hall of Famers Tommy Wayman and Charles Smith along with USPA Polo Development, LLC, Executive Director, Kris Bowman began the training with intensive focus on horsemanship and swing analytics. The riding and hitting videos along with critiques that were filmed during the training will be saved in each player’s personal profile on Poloskilz.com so they can be accessed and updated throughout their careers. Several mentors attended the training such as Team USPA players, Santi Torres, Steve Krueger and Cacho Galindo, as well as professional players, Carlos Galindo, Hector Galindo and Carlucho Arellano. The mentors provided coaching on strategy, professionalism, horsemanship and team play. Game tape reviews as well as emphasis on teamwork and umpiring games were a weekly expectation.

“There are so many people who make this training possible, it is difficult to name them all,” exclaimed Kris Bowman. “When looking for help with junior players, you almost never get turned down! A special shout out to the Flying H Polo Club, Diamond B Polo Club and the Big Horn Polo Club for their support of the event.”
