The National Youth Tournament Series Program was established to provide youth players the opportunity to compete against their peers in USPA-sanctioned outdoor tournaments. At each qualifier, All-Stars are selected by an appointed committee. All-Stars are then eligible to be selected for one of the four open region teams or two female regional teams to compete in the NYTS Championship Cecil Smith Cup and Girls All-Star Challenge. Semifinals and finals for both tournaments will be livestreamed starting on Friday, September 6, with both finals to be held on Sunday, September 8, at New Bridge Polo & Country Club in Aiken, South Carolina. The NYTS qualifier has been designed for upper-intermediate to advanced youth players, those capable of holding a minimum of a “-1” handicap. Click here for more information.
