Leaders: Aaditya C
Standard: Everyone welcome
Meeting: No meeting
Edit: The location is Essendon Canoe Club (Fairbairn Park accessible via 57 Tram route)
For those of you who do not know about Canoe Polo, it is a really fun game that combines dodgem cars, kayaking, and basketball. You are on Kayaks and try to dribble/pass/ and shoot a Waterpolo-like ball into a goal that is raised up in the air.
There will be a Canoe Polo beginner session on Saturday. No experience is required since you can be in the kayaks without a spraydeck, although it is preferable if you have done an intro to kayaking session and know how to wet exit, and know a few strokes.
It is a good opportunity to learn the basics of Canoe Polo and also build up some of your basic paddling techniques. If you are new to the club or just new to Canoe Polo, this is a great chance to play a team sport while also socializing.
We will be having the intermediate session in the morning at 10 am, feel free to come along if you are interested in watching how the game works.
Clothes: Make sure you wear no cotton on you, wear synthetic sportswear (and thermals if you feel cold) since you may fall into the water a few times.
Fee: 10-15$ for the entire set of gear which will be provided at the location, so you do not need to borrow it at the clubrooms. You must sign up for the trip so that we know how many kayaks to bring.
