What we're about

This is the best, most advanced free kayak learning experience you can get in NYC.

Visualize basketball or soccer, but played on the river, between Brooklyn and lower Manhattan.

Only TWO organizations in NYC even do this.

Brooklyn Kayak Guides–in association with the Brooklyn Bridge Park Boathouse–is setting up kayak polo games on Sunday afternoons.

We've got the equipment (kayaks, vests, helmets, paddles)--you bring the enthusiasm and sportsmanship (shorts/sandals, too).

Your level of experience doesn't matter. Prepare to get addicted.

Paddle leisurely or whitewater, kayak polo improves your game big time.

The catch? We're limited to 15 participants per game. Meetup members play for the first game of the day at 11AM. Arrive at 10:15am to set up the goals and get your gear together (boat, vest, helmet, paddle, etc.). Being late is a big no-no.

We'll put you in a team and give you a vest number. Dedicated players and volunteers, though, will end up being teachers to others, and won't need to reserve.

• Season begins soon and continue till mid-September.

• Our Meetup game is begins 11AM (again, arrive at least by 10:15am--the walk from nearby subway stations is roughly 15 minutes).

• Keep an eye out for our notices, to learn when our first session in 2018 happens.

• Don't be left out. See ya soon.

Hi BKP Players, We've waited and the day is finally here. Let's christen our new space with a day of friendly and competitive play. A huge jostling welcome to our new members and our returning players. I hope you are all excited and ready to launch onto our new pitch. The Meetup group is scheduled for the first game which begins at 11 am. Please sprint to Pier 4 Beach by 10:30 am to help set up for the session and get your gear in order. We will be on the water throughout the early morning and afternoon. If you are not with us by 11 am, you may have to wait until we finish a game to come let you in through the gate. It is going to be an awesome season at Brooklyn Kayak Polo!
