Youth Programs

Winston Churchill once said “a polo handicap is a persons ticket to the world,” this is seen true time and time again with many young Australians trading their gap year abroad to work and play internationally.

Venture Polo’s overall goal is to develop and encourage youths within the sport of polo; providing students with a safe, controlled environment to learn and play.

Through our school’s program, we are proud to manage and coach a number of youths, some starting as young as 5 years old. All pupils are welcome, no matter their previous riding experience.

School Holiday Programs

Each School Holidays Venture Polo will hold an intensive week-long polo clinic. The clinic will provide kids with a comprehensive over view of the game; focusing on polo technique/riding, rules and game play. The clinic will cater for both beginner and amateur players.

School Curricular Program

A curricular program can be customized to meet the specific needs and expectations of your school. With this we recommend participants try to stick to a weekly schedule over the course of the term, this will ensure that all areas of focus are covered week to week.

The program will look to initially engage and teach students the fundamentals of the game, with a long term goal of establishing an interschool fixture.

How does it work?

Typically a school will have a master in charge of polo or a parent taking on the role. The school will then work with Venture Polo to devise a program that suits the involved individuals. The master in charge will inform us of who is attending and we will have all the horses prepared for their arrival.

From specified team coaching to one-on-one youth training – success and enjoyment are our goals.
