New York Kayak Polo club is devoted to developing and promoting the sport of Kayak Polo (also known as Canoe Polo) in the New York City area. Everybody is welcome to come and learn this exciting sport!

Kayak Polo is a team sport, played with five players per team in specially designed kayaks on calm water. The object of the game is to score goals in a net suspended 2 meters above the water. It is a fast and active team sport, similar to both basketball and water polo, and a great way to improve boat-handling skills and rolling.

We welcome people of all ages, ability, and experience levels. Learn about the game of kayak polo, our programs (introductory, new-player, and regular sessions), schedules, and club membership. Also check out upcoming kayak polo events and tournaments where NYKP members are competing!

Come and play with us. Your first session is free!

New York Kayak Polo is a 100% volunteer-run 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
