A series of international polocrosse test matches between the UK and USA are to be held this summer, providing a spectacle of skill and speed from both horses and riders.
August 20, 2011, Dallas, TX — When the final American Polocrosse Association USA team roster was announced in November, 2010, there was nothing short of serious dedication by the four men and four women as they prepared for the 2011 World Cup, which took place in July in Rugby, UK. Coach Jane Cooper, a two-time member of the Australian World Cup Champion team, expected nothing less and was an excellent motivator for team USA. The team members were expected to use their racquets on a daily basis, work on their physical fitness levels, ride as much as possible, and attend numerous tournaments. There were also many required team training camps along the way. Jane also stressed how important it was not only for the team members to be positive and united, but believe in themselves that they can win the World Cup. As the days grew closer to the commencement of the World Cup, the team’s main focus was to hit the ground running, by beating the 2007 World Cup Reserve Champions, the UK team, in the first game of the World Cup, and that they did! In the pouring down rain, the USA team pulled a huge upset for the home team with a final score of 17-12. After the game, many compliments from the polocrosse community were made to coach Cooper about the team’s ability to play smart polocrosse.

October 3-6, 2010 marked a historical moment for Polocrosse. Fourteen Polocrosse players (the youngest being 9 years old) and their horses from across the U.S. and 17 other Polocrosse ambassadors successfully showcased the sport of Polocrosse at the 2010 World Equestrian Games in Lexington, KY.
Four great opportunities to watch world-class polocrosse at a local venue are fast approaching!
