"Toronto [Polo Club] has been a huge NYTS program supporter and has produced an impressive crop of youth polo players," said Amanda Snow, USPA Polo Development, LLC director of player development. Avid participants, TPC has hosted a qualifying event every year since the program's inception and has been the sole source of Canadian representatives for almost every NYTS Championship for the Cecil Smith Cup. A combination of extensive facilities and an emphasis on cooperation has allowed Toronto Polo Club to mature into a dynamic club, rivaling many active member clubs in the United States.
