The American Polocrosse Association’s Player Development Program is designed to provide programs to improve all levels of play for all members of the APA. It consists of three separate but connected programs:
Coaching Accreditation Program
Educates, trains, and certifies APA members through a multi-level accreditation program from beginner to advanced, in order to provide safe, effective and standardized coaching.
Domestic Development and Clinic Coordination Program
Provides administrative support for the domestic growth of polocrosse and to coordinate clinics of all levels for APA members and clubs as well as introductory clinics for non-members interested in learning more about the game.
International Tour Program
Provides a program that allows APA members the opportunity to apply, be identified, assessed, and; if selected, trained to play on APA teams representing the United Sates at international competitions.
For more information regarding these programs you may contact the Chair of Player Development listed on the Board Member page. A full PDP Manual is available as a pdf download.
TEAM USA is part of the PDP program and participants in the PDP International Tour Program are groomed for potential participation on World Cup teams.
