New York Kayak Polo

Intro Sessions
The first two sessions you attend are free.

These sessions are perfect for anyone who is new to the sport as well as those who have played a little before. Basic swimming ability is needed, but no paddling experience is necessary. If you've not been in a kayak before, we'll teach you the basics. Then we'll briefly go over safety rules and have some casual games. While sometimes the club has held competitive sessions in the past, the emphasis at these sessions will only be on fun and safety.

Kayak polo is a great way to learn to paddle, improve your paddling and rolling, or maintain your paddling skills through the winter. It's a bit like basketball in kayaks. It's also a great way to meet other sea and whitewater kayakers from the area.

People generally wear bathing suits or a t-shirt and shorts. We have all the other gear you'll need. Be prepared to get wet, and bring a towel - there are showers.

All these sessions are in a warm pool. See directions for driving or public transport to St. Peter's College, Jersey City. People often car-pool from NYC.

RSVPs to nykayakpolo AT gmail DOT com are appreciated but not required.

Grab some friends and come out to try this exciting sport.
