Have you ever heard of the sport polocrosse?

"Polocrosse is just the most fun, dynamic, fast sport out there," said Team USA polocrosse head coach James Heckland.

It's a mixture of lacrosse and polo.

"It's similar to a lacrosse racket but you have to use one hand instead of the two hands with lacrosse because you have to steer your horse with the other one," said Rob Shuttles, a Team USA polocrosse player.

This weekend the Team USA polocrosse team and the Team Ireland polocrosse team are set to play in Wilmer for a warm-up game before the World Cup next month.
