Canoe Polo

Canoe Polo is a fast and exciting team sport. Often described as water polo in kayaks. Usually played in a swimming pool where the ball can be thrown by hand or flicked with a paddle. In higher grades you can also push an opponent holding the ball. Canoe Polo is a fun way to learn basic kayak skills (rolling, turning, bracing) and is suitable for all standards.
