In September of 2018, the USPA Club and Membership Development Committee established an ad hoc committee to conduct strategic planning for the Polo Development Initiative (PDI) for 2019 and beyond. The goal of the strategic planning process is to review and amend the PDI program to have a greater impact on the growth and development of the sport at the grassroots level and sustain USPA clubs as the foundation for future growth.
To properly implement the changes taking effect in 2019, the 2019 PDI deadline is being extended from December 31, 2018 to January 31, 2019. A new application and guidelines will be available after the first of the year. This will allow for clubs to properly disseminate and plan out their application accordingly.
Please contact Justin Powers, firstname.lastname@example.org, if you have any questions regarding the deadline and/or the strategic planning process for PDI.
