What we're about

Kayak Polo, also known as Canoe Polo is one of the eight disciplines of canoeing. Kayak Polo combines canoeing and ball handling skills with an exciting contact team game, where tactics and positional play are as important as the speed and fitness of the individual athletes. It is a cross between water polo, basketball, and hockey. Please join us in the pool, we'd be happy to show you what it's all about :) If your have any questions drop us a line here on Meetup! (https://www.meetup.com/NYkayakpolo/) and follow us on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/pages/New-York-Kayak-Polo/465827163439084) for event photos and videos.

Upcoming events (4+)

Wednesday night drills and scrimmages

Yanitelli Recreational Life Center

PLEASE SIGN UP AT LEAST 48 HOURS IN ADVANCE! We will need to cancel sessions that do not have at least 6 people signed up.

Our play time is 8:30pm - 10:00pm. Please arrive around 8pm to change and begin setting up the pool and goals once the previous group has cleared the area so that we can start play at 8:30. Play needs to stop by 10:00, so that we can set the pool back up for swimming and exit the building by 10:30pm.

Our Wednesday night sessions are focused on training drills and scrimmages. If you have not played before, it may be better to come to a Saturday introductory session; contact the session host(s) beforehand to discuss whether this session is appropriate for you. A basic understanding of the game, and intermediate-level kayaking skills (including maneuvering strokes, edge control, self- or assisted-rescues and/or comfort with wet exits, etc.) are required.

American Canoe Association (ACA) memberships and annual waivers, or single-session waivers and insurance fees, are required for all participants. (See https://americancanoe.org/join/individuals/)

For new players, the first session is free. After that, if you have not paid season/annual club dues, the single-session event fee is $20 for ACA members and $30 for non-ACA members.

Our play time is 3:30pm - 5:00pm. Please arrive at 3pm to change and begin setting up the pool and goals once the previous group has cleared the area so that we can start play at 3:30.

Our Saturday sessions are good opportunities to get introduced to the sport. If you have not played with us before, please either contact the session hosts or post a comment, so that we can make sure this will be a good session for you. Bring clothes that you will be comfortable swimming in (but more than just a swimming suit, exercise t-shirt and shorts are adequate). Players can expect to capsize, and will get wet.
