Player Development Program Opportunities
Youth Development Program
The Youth Player Development Program is up and running for the 2023 Season. All APA members under 21 years of age are invited to join.
This program is an incredible resource for younger players who want to improve their game play and meet other young players from around the country.
Members of this program will get coaching from World Cup Squad players at tournaments, will be invited to YDP exclusive events, clinics, and camps, and will receive membership in a variety of horsemanship topics.
YDP Members will also be automatically shortlisted for all YDP tours.
