Lisa M. Nousek represents clients in federal and state trial and appellate courts as a partner of Boies, Schiller & Flexner in Armonk, New York. Outside her legal responsibilities, Lisa M. Nousek also supports the Polo Training Foundation (PTF) and funds initiatives such as its intercollegiate umpire training program.

PTF’s umpire training programs operate in conjunction with United State Polo Association (USPA) clubs and provide sponsorship for pre-approved training clinics hosted at any PTF or USPA-related club. Sponsorships cover a single clinic at each approved club and cover half of the membership cost, up to a $1,000 reimbursement maximum.

In 2002, Cornell University allowed the PTF to begin conducting Intercollegiate-Interscholastic (I-I) umpire training clinics during the William S. Fields Invitational Tournament. Now one of PTF’s most productive training programs, the I-I clinic consists of a series of 14 games held over a five-day period where students referee, umpire, and critique one another throughout the program. The USPA I-I staff undertook organizational procedures for the program in 2012.
