Kayak Polo

Kayak polo is a competitive game with the objective to pass a ball to teammates in order to advance the ball down the pool to ultimately score points in the other team’s goal, similar to traditional water polo, soccer, and ultimate frisbee. Outdoor Chattanooga offers free kayak polo sessions at Stuart Heights Pool in Chattanooga every Wednesday in September from 7:30PM – 9:00PM. These sessions are open to beginners as well as advanced kayakers but due to the fast-paced nature of the game, all players should have some experience in effectively maneuvering a kayak. Whitewater kayaks are recommended however, participants with recreational kayaks are also welcome to participate. You’re encouraged to bring your own equipment or Outdoor Chattanooga will have a limited number of whitewater kayaks and helmets available on a first come first serve basis. Online Registration is recommendedWalk-ins are permitted if space allows. Registered participants get first pick of gear.

Prior to play, participants will be briefed on safety and the rules of kayak polo. Teams consist of up to eight players and are matched based on skill sets.  Fundamental kayak instruction is not provided in this session but is offered with the Rapid Learning Whitewater Kayak program skills and roll practices on Wednesdays.
