In a joint effort to support the increase of American polo players on tournament rosters, the High-Goal Committee and Rules Committee have revised the American Rule. The revised rule will took effect January 1, 2023. Made up of high-goal professionals, team sponsors, polo managers, and representatives of key USPA committees, the High-Goal Committee believes the rule is a significant step in helping more Americans get high-goal opportunities.
1. The new American Rule, which applies to all levels of polo, took effect January 1, 2023.
2. A team with a non-playing sponsor must have at least two players who are both Registered Player Members.
3. Unless a team already has two Registered Player Members, any non-injury substitute for a playing sponsor or designated sponsor must be a Registered Player Member.REVISED AMERICAN RULE (USPA OUTDOOR RULE 1.F)
