This is the beginning of the Tale of the Traveling USA Shirts:We crossed the cold wet pond and arrived in hot Texas this March. We were so excited that we got to make our debut at the famous Lone Star Polocrosse Tournament we had heard so much about. There was one USA Akuma Polo Team- We got to play with Bri True, Dori Johnson and Rachael Martin(AUS) along with the men, Sam Pohl, Evan Vallee and Jake Burgdorf(AUS).

We played fast and hard. Polocrosse is quite different than polo!

The USA Akuma Polo World Cup Squad Playing shirts in hot pursuit of the ball!When we had time to brake and watch some top polocrosse. We did a fun photo shoot to send back to Akuma to use for publicity- Sometimes we got a little silly… We did get some great shots though. USA Squad member Jessie Reed who is also heading up the major sponsorship heavy lifting took some great shots! There was some amazing play to watch. The young players are definitely to be watched in the next couple years!
