Host clubs must be a USPA Member Club in good standing.

If your club is interested in hosting the NYTS National Championship Cecil Smith Cup and Girls All-Star Challenge, please review the following specs and submit your bid with the following criteria outlined to Director of Player Development Amanda Snow at asnow@uspolo.org.
