One of Heritage’s Scholars selected to represent the USA Polo Team in Chile!
We are thrilled to announce that Bryan Burby (14) was selected by the American International Polo Foundation (AIPF) to participate in the Children’s International Championship at Cristobel Polo Club in Santiago, Chile. There are only 4 kids in the United States selected! The Championship is hosted by the Chilean Polo Foundation for players ages 10-12 and 13-14 for 5 days of polo clinics, scrimmage and tournaments. Bryan will join with youth players from Chile, United Kingdom and Argentina. He will have a truly international experience, building polo skills and life-long bonds that will serve him for decades to come.
Bryan has been intensively training over the last ten months. This summer, he became a member of the Being the Change (BTC) Interscholastic Team competing in the United States Polo Association (USPA) Central Circuit. In July he had the opportunity to go to Guatemala to play in this first interscholastic tournament. Bryan will use the opportunity of going to Chile to gain both leadership and performance skills to mentor to the incoming Interscholastic team members and the younger PeeWee players.
Heritage Academy wishes Bryan the best of luck in the Championship, and know he will represent the USA well! We will be cheering for you!
