Term 1 Canoe Polo league

Mr C Johnston —

Canoe Polo in 2018

This year we have had three teams playing in the weekly canoe polo league, held at Lake Roto Kohatu every Wednesday afternoon. 

The next event for our canoe polo students is the South Island Secondary School's canoe polo championships, held in Oamaru 10th-12th August. 

Canoe Polo is a game of two halves of 10 minutes where two teams of five players battle it out with a canoe polo ball. The aim is to score into a goal, which is suspended above the water at each end of a rectangular 'playing pitch'. Canoe polo combines canoeing and ball handling skills with an exciting contact team game, where tactics and positional play are as important as the speed and fitness of the individual players.

New players are always welcome to the sport - the next weekly league starts in Term 4!
