About NY Kayak Polo

Our club is devoted to developing and promoting the sport of Kayak Polo (also known as Canoe Polo) in the New York City area. Everybody is welcome to come and learn this exciting sport!

Kayak Polo is a team sport, played with five players per team in specially designed kayaks on calm water. The object of the game is to score goals in a net suspended 2 meters above the water. It is a fast and active team sport, similar to both basketball and water polo, and a great way to improve boat-handling skills and rolling.

We welcome people of all ages, ability, and experience levels. More details about the game, our programs (introductory, new-player, and regular sessions), schedules, and other information are available through the links above.

Stop by Pier 66 (at W 26th Street; next to the Frying Pan) to watch some games or send an email to nykayakpolo at gmail.com to sign up for an intro.

New York Kayak Polo is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.
