The GavSays Polo Academy:

Online Lessons & Coaching For All Aspects of Your Polo

Ball Hitting, Stickwork & Control

Tactics, Strategy & Anticipation

Horse Training, Care & Maintanence

Your Riding, Fitness & MORE...

Hi there, I'm Gav Chaplin and I would love to become your Online Polo Coach by inviting you to join me in the GavSays Polo Academy! 

If you want to move your polo to the next level...

If you are ready to start hitting (all the shots) with more consistency and direction ... Even under pressure...

If you are ready to ride stronger, have better finesse with your hands, get the correct seats/posture for all the different strokes...

If you want to understand the correct strategies and tactics... AND be able to implement them on the field...

And if you want to WIN more games...

Then I would love you to join me inside the GavSays Polo Academy, where you'll learn all of those things, and EXACTLY how to progress YOUR Polo to the next level!

Here's The Story... of How it All Started:

So I have been coaching polo players and teams successfully, across the globe, for over 30 years.

After years of playing professionally off 7 goals -- and learning from players such as Eduardo Moore (10) and Tommy Wayman (10)...

...I turned my attention to passing on all the knowledge that I had gained from those top players and horseman -- And from my own personal experience, into coaching others.

From...
  • Coaching Leo Baxter’s “Stonefield” teams for 3 years (where his 22 goal team only lost 3 games in that time and Leo’s handicap rose from -1 to 2 goals)...
  • To coaching the South African National team for 5 years with a 98% win record...
  • And having coached the likes of Nachi du Plessis (8), Jean du Plessis (7), Tom de Bruin (7), and Chris Mackenzie (7) at various times in their carriers...
  • Plus hundreds of beginners and lower goal players...

I have had the most incredible journey of IMPACTING peoples polo, helping them play better, win more, and ultimately ENJOY their polo more!

But in that time I realized that I could only impact and help a limited number of people when coaching "in-person"...

And for me, it just wasn't enough.

I wanted to be able to help more people with all the things that you need to learn to play great polo, and really love it when you play.

And so... I started creating videos from the coaching I was doing. And...

When I started receiving comments like this:

I Knew I Was Onto Something
That Could Make a BIG Difference to a Lot of People!

So what is the GavSays Polo Academy?

Quite simply... It's an online membership that gives you on-going training and lessons, from me and other experts and professionals, on all aspects of playing polo.

Including lessons on all the following topics:

  • ✅ Ball Hitting: How to hit all the shots & improve your ball striking
  • ✅ On-Field Tactics and Anticipation: How and where to play on the field
  • ✅ Training your Polo Ponies: Plus care, maintenance and fitness, etc.
  • ✅ Riding Better (to be more effective on the field) and Personal Fitness
  • ✅ Bitting
  • ✅ And so MUCH more!

"Helping you reach your Polo Potential."

"I believe that practice does not make perfect, it's perfect practice that makes perfect.

When you're practicing, you are creating habits and muscle memory.

SO YOU HAVE TO make sure you are practicing the right things and creating the right habits, PLUS muscle memory...

Which is exactly what I will be teaching how to do inside my Online Academy..."

So if You Are Frustrated With the Following...

As I so often hear people saying....

  • "I can't get any consistency with my shots."
  • "I can't get my hooks right! I often attempt to hook too soon, and then miss entirely."
  • "I hit the ball perfectly when I'm stick and balling... But come game time and there's suddenly pressure... I start miss-hitting my shots or completely miss the ball."
  • "I can't get my horses to stop correctly!"
  • "I'm always late to a play and can't seem to get into the right place on the field"
OR...

If you're a more advanced player that simply wants to take your polo to the next level, advance your tactics and go up in handicap?

OR...

If you are an absolute beginner and need to know how to get started and what to learn next...

THEN...

I'm here to tell you that with the right information you can absolutely resolve those frustrations, focus in on what you need to learn and practice in your stage of progression...

And absolutely take your polo to the next level...

If you are any of the above, then the (online) GavSays Polo Academy is PERFECT for you!

INSIDE the GavSays Polo Academy... The lessons you are about to get instant access to are valued at over a few $1000 USD.

But for the first 2 weeks, it's FREE....

Yep, you can get in through our 14-day free trial to check out the entire Academy at no risk to you.

And then...

You have two options:

(1) through a monthly membership of $27 USD, or...

From there, you can start DIVING IN!

BINGE WATCH if that’s your style… Or jump right to the SPECIFIC training that covers your biggest question right now…

Or block off time to watch ONE NEW lesson each day and build the DAILY HABIT to GROW your knowledge and improve all aspects of your polo.

There are NO long-term contracts. You can cancel at ANY time.
