Agassi together with our talented veterans are leading an intro session for new members!
We are moving to Pier 66 in the Hudson soon, where the tides can be pretty choppy sometimes. If you have signed up for NYKP but have not joined a pool session yet, or if you are a new member that want to sharpen your skills before the river sessions, I would totally seize the opportunity!
Pending signups, this session might be converted to regular session.
PLEASE SIGN-UP EARLY: A minimum of 8 people are needed to schedule this session. If less than 8 people are signed up 48 hours before the session, the session will be cancelled.
Sunday Morning Sessions are targeted at players who have fundamental kayak polo skills and are learning strategy and rules. Expect drills followed by competitive scrimmage. If you don’t have experience with kayak polo, or with paddling a closed cockpit kayak with a sprayskirt–rolling or doing a wet exit–please attend one of our Saturday Night Sessions first. Please check our session descriptions to see which of our weekly sessions is best for you.
Pool opens at 9:00am. If arriving later than 9:30am, please let someone know so we can open the door… or be prepared to wave from the door and wait till someone sees you!
On Sundays, we need to be out of the pool and have it ready for the next group by 12:00 noon. Please plan accordingly.
Club & Facility Cost: Two free trial sessions are available for newcomers; season or per-session fees are due for everyone else ($125/winter season or $20/session). See 2016 Membership Fees in the Meetup Files section for more info.
