GENERAL INFO: The level of play varies, and beginners are welcome, but people should be comfortable in a kayak, and have a roll. WHAT TO BRING: In general, for kayak polo bring all of your own equipment, EXCEPT boat. That's: paddle, sprayskirt, helmet, and PFD.
WE SUPPLY polo boats (required - let us know if you need one). Bring your OWN SKIRT. The polo boats take a racing (slalom) skirt, or a small whitewater skirt. We have a few extra skirts, but may not have your size. Bring your own HELMET; we'll also have some with masks. ALL non-polo PADDLES must be DUCT-TAPED.
If you have any questions please e-mail Angela Killian findwater[at]yahoo[dot]com. Thanks!
"Canoe Polo is an exciting team event played on 35m x 23m
pitches set up in swimming pools or on flat stretches of water. Teams of
5 paddlers endeavor to score goals in a net suspended 2m above the
water, the ball being thrown by hand, or 'flicked' with the paddle.
Naturally, the team
