YALE STUDENT MEMBERSHIP

Joining the polo team may just be the best decision of your Yale career. Students of all ages and riding abilities are encouraged to join, even complete beginners!

Membership

GENERAL REQUIREMENTS

In order to join the Yale Polo Club Team, you must be an undergraduate or graduate student, or postgraduate affiliate of Yale University. 

RIDING REQUIREMENTS

Yale Polo does not require prior riding experience. New members will be put into practice groups based on their prior experience. New members must also attend beginner riding clinics and horse care clinics during the academic year.

GRADUATE STUDENTS

Students at Yale’s graduate and professional schools, as well as postgraduate affiliates, are welcome to join and practice with the team. However, most graduate students cannot compete on the intercollegiate team because USPA rules permit only first-year, non-transfer graduate students who have already played as USPA members at Yale to participate in intercollegiate matches.

MEMBERSHIP RESPONSIBILTIES

As a Yale Polo Club member (students), you will be required to:​

  • Attend and help at home games 

  • Ride sets (non-playing riding sessions to exercise horses) 

  • Pay club dues

    • Dues vary based on the number of practices per week and the type of member
