FEATURED IN:

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 are ready to move your polo to the next level...

  • If you are ready to start hitting all your shots with more consistency and direction ... Even under pressure
  • If you are ready to ride better, be quicker on the field, have more finesse with the reins, and get the correct seat/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 and have more FUN

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

Here's The Story Of How It All Started:

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 those 3 years 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 (9), Jean du Plessis (7), Tom de Bruin (7), and Chris Mackenzie (7) at various times in their careers...
  • 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 play great polo, and to really love it when they played.

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!

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

- Tyneski 

So if You Are Frustrated With Any of The Following:

As I so often hear polo players saying....

  • "I can't get any consistency with my shots."
  • "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 can't get my hooks right! I often attempt to hook too soon, and then miss entirely."
  • "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:

  • Solve those frustrations,
  • Focus in on what you need to learn and practice in your stage of progression,
  • Learn how to play polo correctly from the beginning,
  • And absolutely take your polo to the next level, regardless of whether you're a beginner, an amatuer, or an experienced player going pro

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

If I have a problem in training my horse I can find some different ideas so I am not just doing the same thing that is not working. Also for myself, if I am getting beat in a certain play or not hitting a shot consistently or as well as I would like I can always find a solution. Lastly I find Gav VERY easy to understand and in a relaxed manner that allows me to learn what he is trying to teach. Please keep up the good work! I appreciate both Gav and Rob's help very much."

My Understanding of the Game (Has) Increased Greatly

"After finding GavSays Polo Academy, my understanding of the game increased greatly . Having experience in other equine disciplines was helpful , but I wanted the how's & why's of the game. Starting polo at 56 was hard enough, I have gone through & back through the pillars and videos along with lessons weekly . I believe you'd be able to tell which players use all the Academy has to offer."

I think GavSays is the absolute best tool out there for anyone at any level of polo

"I have been a member of GavSays for a few years now. I think this is the best tool anyone can use to improve their polo. At any given moment of your day, you can access GavSays and have a virtual lesson at your fingertips. If you take an hour lesson at home, you will pay far more for that one lesson than the academy costs for months! And how many of us retain all that is said in that one hour lesson? With the academy, you can go over the videos again and again and Gav and Rob will answer any questions you may have. You can send videos of yourself to Gav for critique. You can send videos of your game for review, too! A bonus perk is it is a wonderful way to connect with people around the world. I think GavSays is the absolute best tool out there for anyone at any level of polo; from beginners, to horse trainers, to weekend warriors, to high rated professionals, Gav can help us all."
