Jim Wright played in the NYTS national championship in 2014 and is now returning to coach in 2018. Like several other Team USPA members in the past, Wright plays with the Antelope organization at Eldorado Polo Club and Santa Barbara Polo Club, both in California, under the tutelage of Santi Trotz. Wright will now pass on his knowledge to the next generation of up- and-coming players. Wright is excited to be involved in the NYTS program as a coach. "Going from participating in the tournament to joining Team USPA and now being a coach is really neat. It comes full circle," he said. Team USPA alumnus CB Scherer works in Boston, Massachusets, in the real estate industry and sees coaching as a way to stay involved in the sport when not playing. Scherer and Snow volunteer to coach at the NYTS qualifier each year at Myopia Polo Club and Scherer makes an effort to work with the Harvard Polo team as much as possible throughout the fall and winter. Branden Van Loon was named head coach of the Yale Polo Club after playing at Cornell throughout his college career and enjoys sharing his love of the sport with youth players. Polo remains a sport rooted in tradition, but the introduction of quality and consistent coaching to up-and-coming players enhances the learning experience and encourages personal growth in players.
