Insurance

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 one free trial session.

Upon arrival, newcomers should sign a paper copy of the ACA waiver, and either pay the $5 single-event insurance fee each session or join the ACA at their $25 annual rate.
