The American International Polo Foundation (AIPF), a 501(c)(3) registered charity, has officially kicked-off a campaign to host a junior team with players ages 12 to 14 from Chile. In 2018, the AIPF sent an American team to San Cristobal Polo Club in Santiago, Chile, to compete in a junior tournament that included competitors from Argentina, Peru and the United States. Treating players to the trip of a lifetime, the memorable experience included accommodations at the home of their Chilean hosts alongside premier horses and fields.

The AIPF is actively seeking a host club able to provide suitable horses, fields and accommodation for an American hosted junior tournament tentatively scheduled for either the spring or fall of 2024. Additionally, the AIPF is working with the USPA to select a team comprised of excellent stewards of the sport, with an announcement for applications to follow.

If your club is interested in hosting the junior tournament, please contact AIPF President-Treasurer Ed Armstrong at For more information about AIPF including contributing a tax-deductible donation, please visit the AIPF website. All donations over $100 will receive a limited edition, AIPF hat.
