New Player Course

Posted on
  • Hey LPC,

    Jess and I have been talking about doing another new player series. Similar to the one she ran last year but tweaked a little to hopefully retain some more new players.

    The basic plan is to have 4 sessions at Newington on Tuesdays, starting from June 11th. With a small follow up tourney on a Saturday sometime.

    The course will be open to anyone (e.g. mixed gender), but we will be trying our best to encourage women & non-binary people to sign up.

    Also, we’re going to charge £10/session to try and encourage commitment, but we will pay for people who can’t afford it.

    Three things:

    1. We will need at least 6 people to commit to each session.

    2. We want to follow up the sessions with a more organised weekly schedule to facilitate new players better than just regular pickup which can be an intimidating leap.

    3. No drinking or drugs on court while we’re running the sessions.

    / / /

    Our suggestion for 2 is to make Tuesdays at Newington our 'new player day'. 6:30 -8:30pm we do games / drills to help new players and then from 8:30 to lights we have high octane games.

    The idea of high octane games is so that we can develop the club at all levels and to give reward to the players' patience in helping new players. Anyone who has been playing for 1 year can play high octane games. New players who haven't been playing that long can take the opportunity to observe polo at the higher level, solo polo, have games on the other court etc...

    Thoughts and feedback please (though if you want to talk about point 3 maybe take it here https://www.lfgss.com/conversations/3341­14/ so we don't derail the planning of the new player course too much) x
