We now have 50 current club girls assigned a club alum to connect with for the 20th year reunion alumni reports. We want EVERYONE playing summer polo to be involved!
My goal is to make 100 current player/alumni connections to celebrate our 20 years. All players who haven’t been assigned an alum should email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to get a name and info on how to do this project.
If you have already received your alum assignment, I hope you’ve made a connection already. If you haven’t, get in touch with them soon!
The reunion is Friday/Saturday June 26-27. The alums are so excited to share their stories with you!
Below are the rosters for the 16 & 18 National Team groups.
While tryouts are finished, we want to remind everyone that evaluations continue on a daily basis. As coaches, we want to see a commitment to continued improvement and we will make group adjustments as needed.
2015 National Groups as of 5-17
