New York Kayak Polo receives insurance coverage from the American Canoe Association (ACA).

Everyone participating in a NY Kayak Polo session, tournament, or other event on the water needs to have signed an ACA Waiver (online or PDF) for the current calendar year and be covered by ACA insurance by either being a paid up-to- date member in ACA or paying a one-time ACA event insurance fee ($5).

This applies current members as well as newcomers participating in our two free trial sessions.

Upon arrival, newcomers should sign a paper copy of the ACA waiver (or you can complete it online if you have a mobile device). If paying the one-time event insurance fee ($5) it will be collected by the event organizers at that time. Alternatively, newcomers can enroll in ACA membership (best approach). The annual fee is $40. Other options include a 6 month $15 introductory membership and a $25 student membership. (A $10 discount will be applied to regular annual memberships if you select “New York Kayak Polo” as your “Paddle America Club” during the application process.)
