You may have seen our other information on the sport of polocrosse, what the rules are and even where our clubs are…..but how do you actually learn to play?
The APA has a current contact list of certified coaches/instructors/clinicians who are available to travel to your location for clinics and instruction to safely help your polocrosse experience. APA certified coaches have been approved and held to a high standard by the Coaching Accreditation Program (CAP). The CAP was created to standardize the process of certifying qualified polocrosse instructors. These individuals have committed their time and energy towards the growth of polocrosse in the United States, ensuring a core competency in play and in teaching. They’ve also demonstrated their commitment to safety and horsemanship, having undergone the necessary course requirements to validate their certification. We strongly encourage new players to utilize an APA certified coach of this caliber.
