About Canoe Polo


In a flurry of foam and paddles, the ten canoe polo players in outfitted in face guards, helmets and body armor look like aquatic gladiators. But the hard-hitting action of kayak polo justifies every piece of protective gear they wear. From the very first whistle, the two teams of five fight over possession of the ball, no player being allowed to keep it for more than five seconds before passing it to a team mate using his or her hands or paddles, … or before scoring a goal. Tackling a ball-holding player – including his or her high-tech kayak is also permitted!
