A mashup designed to bring all levels of players together.
Depending on number of signups, we will adjust our plans accordingly.
We encourage all of our members and community to participate!
PLEASE SIGN-UP EARLY: A minimum of 16 people are needed to schedule this session. If less than 16 people are signed up one week before the mashup, the session will be converted to a regular session. If less than 8 people are signed up 48 hours before the session, the session will be cancelled.
Saturday Night Sessions are a little slower paced and ideal for new(er) and developing players. Drills will be adapted to the turnout and skill levels of participants, and friendly scrimmage games will follow. Saturday Night Sessions are ideal for existing kayakers who would like to try or get into kayak polo. If you are not a kayaker and if you don’t have experience paddling a closed cockpit kayak with a sprayskirt–rolling or doing a wet exit–please message the session organizer or attend one of our Saturday Night INTRO Sessions first. Please check our session descriptions to see which of our weekly sessions is best for you.
Important: On Saturday nights we need to be out of the building by 8:30PM. Please check the Meetup schedule and put everything away if a session is not schedule for the next morning on Sunday.
