Santa Barbara Youth Polo Association
The Santa Barbara Youth Polo Association is a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation Santa Barbara International Polo Training Center DBA Santa Barbara Youth Polo Association. Federal Tax Identification Number (EIN) is 26-0074661. which enables students ages 13-25 to be involved in one of the most exciting and challenging sports on earth. We do this by offering scholarship funds to the students who enroll in the Scholastic/Collegiate Arena Polo Program at John Westley's Santa Barbara Polo School November through March. Because of these SBYPA scholarships each year many kids of different skill levels and backgrounds are active in a sport that teaches them about hard work, discipline, teamwork, compassion and respect. In this program students are able to go on to compete in pre-regional, regional and national United States Polo Association sponsored tournaments against other students their age. Without generous donations from people like you, this would not be possible. Thank you for your support.
A full 95% of the generous donations to the SBYPA go directly to scholarship funds for the kids involved in the polo program.
The students who have participated in John Westley's Santa Barbara Polo School Scholastic/Collegiate Arena Program and awarded scholarships have been from schools like Westmont College, Santa Barbara City College, UC Santa Barbara, Santa Barbara High, Laguna Blanca High School, San Marcos High School, Santa Barbara Jr. High, Cate School, Thacher School and Crane Country Day School, as well as home school students. For the scholastic program you can be from any school within 100 miles.
