What is canoe polo?

  • The aim is to avoid opponents, achieve good shooting positions and score a goal. It makes for a fast and thrilling event.
  • Take a look at the video below, to get a sneak peek of one of our training sessions.

You will also be doing the level 2 kayaking course during the sessions.
