Want to try out kayak polo? Join us for a friendly intro session on Tuesday evening! Come by pier 66 at 6:30pm to get set up with equipment.
IMPORTANT: If you have never been in a kayak before, we strongly suggest that you try out one of the free kayaking programs on the Hudson River ahead of time (at Pier 26, Pier 96 and 72nd street) … you NEED to be able to balance on or in a kayak on the Hudson River to be able to add a ball! To get the *most* out of the intro session, you should already be comfortable with wearing a sprayskirt in a closed cockpit kayak and doing a wet exit. (Balance simply requires spending some time sitting on the water in a kayak – so please try this first. We will teach you the wet exit if needed.)
**You will get wet! So please bring something quick-drying to wear in a kayak (including water shoes), a towel and a change of clothes / shoes.**
Two free trial sessions are available for newcomers; membership and playing fees are due for everyone else ($175 for full year, all included; membership year begins May 15). See Club and Facility Fees info for seasonal and per-session options. ACA Membership is required and due separately from club and facility fees (one-time ACA event membership is included for those in free trial sessions). Regulars: please confirm that your ACA membership is up to date or renew now. NYKP Members receive a discount! Newcomers can join ACA for 6 months at $15 for or for full year $30 (use PAC Individuals & Families options and select New York Kayak Polo).
