Fall Age Group & Junior Polo info coming soon

The fall session for 8th grade and under aged girls will begin on August 28. We will post the registration info here after we finish up an exciting weekend at the Junior Olympics! Keep an eye on the website in the next week or so for registration instructions.

Follow this link to last year’s fall info to get an idea of how the season is organized. Please do not try to register using last year’s info! We try to keep details as consistent as we can from year to year. The registration fee may change.

There are no tryouts for the 8th grade and under programs. The year is split into fall, winter, spring, and summer seasons for girls in this age group. Summer is the highest commitment, with four practices each week and games on weekends.
