Each year, 48 boys and 48 girls will receive the prestigious honor of being named a Rolex Junior All-American.
Determining the Rolex Junior All-America Teams
Players must have competed in a minimum of six Polo Golf ranked events to be eligible for year-end Rolex Junior All-America honors. AJGA team events count for the purpose of reaching the six-event minimum, but do not receive points. All starts in ranked events will count toward a player’s ranking. Any withdrawals, disqualifications, etc., will count as an event played once a player begins a tournament. Graduating seniors are eligible for Rolex All-America honors as long as they have met the above criteria.
Format of the Rolex Junior All-America Teams:
First Team: Top 12 eligible boys and top 12 eligible girls in the Polo Golf Rankings
Second Team: Next 12 eligible boys and next 12 eligible girls in the Polo Golf Rankings
Honorable Mention: Next 24 eligible boys and next 24 eligible girls in the Polo Golf Rankings
The Polo Golf Rankings year begins with the Polo Golf Junior Classic and concludes with the PING Invitational.
