This season, along with the four Junior Tournaments and the four Youth Tournaments, the PTF will also be hosting two foreign Exchange Teams from England and New Zealand, as well as the second annual Junior Championship tournament. The Junior Tournaments are designed for players 21 and under to enter their own teams and play in a single elimination, open format (played on the flat).

As the Polo Training Foundation is a non-profit organization, the Florida Junior Polo Program thrives because of local support and team sponsorships.
