PTF Young Player Program
September 27, 2014
Students and parents from Boston to Baltimore attended second Polo Training Foundation College Fair program started in Florida in April 2014. This event was held at the PTF Hickox Polo Fields in Old Westbury, NY. Eight college coaches representing, Cornell, UConn, Princeton, Skidmore, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Virginia, and Yale explained their programs to thirty-two high school and middle school students. Each coach had a table and interviewed the students individually or in small groups. Students and parents were thrilled by the opportunity to scope out many schools with college programs at one event. The coaches were excited to meet students with an interest in their programs and appreciated the opportunity to speak with younger students about how important it was to achieve good academic standing in order to play polo in college.
Following the event two games were played at Bob Ceparano’s Country Farms arena. Six middle school students battled each other in a two chukker match. This was followed by a round robin with ten of the high school students participating. Although getting good enough grades to get into a polo playing college are the most important element, the coaches were very interested in watching the athleticism of the student players.
The Polo Training Foundation plans to continue the College Fair series, rotating the location around the entire country, so that many more high school students can be exposed to these terrific collegiate programs.
