The Polo team at Colorado State has been one of the most successful clubs in CSU history. The men's team has won the U.S. Polo Association National Championship in 1990, 1991, and 1999. Our women's program has qualified for the national tournament almost every year and we have had several students named to the All American team. The current roster has about 45 players on it. Both men's and women's teams are currently ranked 2nd in the nation. Tryouts for the varsity teams (men's & women's) are held in October. Depending on the number of people interested each semester, cuts may be made for incoming members. However we avoid this scenario at all costs and try to keep anyone who is interested in learning the game and helping with the club. The collegiate season is in the spring with the national tournament held in April. Practice is held three times a week: Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday evenings. Each level has its own practice, plus exercising the horses on the off days.
The Polo team is a member of the USPA (United States Polo Association) Intercollegiate. We compete against many schools in our region such as; Texas University, Texas Tech, Texas A&M, Oklahoma, and Texas State University. Students are expected to provide for all travel expenses including hotel, transport, and flights. The average cost for a trip is about $800. Dues are paid each semester with dues being ($400) for beginners, ($500) for JV, ($575) for JV travel, and ($800) for varsity. Minimal costs for normal practice for players other then varsity will be required. Your cost for the club will cover equipment as well. Your mallet, tack, and horse are provided, but students must provide their own boots.
