Find your place in a NDCC Canoe Polo Team.
Canoe polo is like basketball on water. It’s an energetic game that combines the ball skills of basketball and water polo with the manoeuvrability of a kayak.
Canoe polo is played on flatwater, such as a lake. (or in a swimming pool) The field is about 25m x 35m with the goal suspended above the water at each end.
Each player paddles a specially designed kayak called a “polo bat” which is less than 3m long for manoeuvrability and has padded bumpers on each end for safety.
The ball is passed hand to hand, as in water polo, or can be flicked with the paddle.
The paddle can also be used to intercept passes or to block shots at goal.
Safety is a big consideration for players, each wears a helmet with a face mask to protect the head, face and neck. Injuries are rare and the referees are there to protect the players from unduly rough or dangerous play. Many sportspeople who have injuries through playing high impact sports can turn to canoe polo to maintain fitness or to play a sport where injuries are rare.
It doesn’t matter if you are short or tall, young or old, male or female, canoe polo is great fun
