Level 1 Canoe Polo Coaching Course

We are working with Canoeing Ireland to hold a Polo specific Level 1 coaching course. The course is a 2 day program leading to a CI accredited Level 1 Coaching Award and is aimed at those currently coaching at their club or group but who don't have a coaching qualification. In order to improve the level of coaching throughout the country, NCPC will be offering 1 subsidised place on the course per club up to a maximum of 10 clubs. If you are interested in attending this course please ask your club to nominate you by emailing chair@canoepolo.ie 

Committee Vacancy

The new committee was elected at our AGM in October, unfortunately we were unable to fill all vacancies at the AGM and are now looking to fill one vacancy on the National Canoe Polo Committee.  The new committee is listed on the committee page. If you are interested in joining the committee please email chair@canoepolo.ie

Another successful Galway Canoe Polo Open took place on the June Bank Holiday weekend in the centre of Galway city. 19 teams played over 2 days between Divisions 1, 2, 3 and Ladies.  Their Facebook page has details on the event along with photos and results. The next competition takes place this weekend in Courtown. See the competitions tab for details.

Squad Invitation

The Women and U21 squads are having an open invitation on the 10th March at 10.30am in Kilcock for anyone that has aspirations to paddle, coach or generally help out with the National teams.  This is open to all women, U21 men (16 and above) and U21 women (age 15 and above) and the idea of the weekend is to give an idea of what the National teams are about. There will be various discussions and training sessions to give everyone a starting base for squad selection in early 2013. Even if you have never been before, come along as you might be surprised!

Irish Open Update

This year see's the 10th Anniversary of the European Championships held in Ireland.  To celebrate this event we have decided to hold the Irish Open at the same venue. Kilcock is one of the best locations for Canoe Polo in Ireland, with easy access to the water and the ability to join forces with North Kildare to provide ample space for up to four pitches.  This is a very important event on the Irish Canoe Polo calendar and a lot of work is going on in the background.  The Irish Open Committee comprising of 2 representatives from NCPC and a representative from each of the clubs involved are working closely with local businesses and Waterways Ireland to ensure an excellent competition.  The town will also host a festival that weekend, ensuring plenty of atmosphere and spectators alike. Kilcock is conveniently located close to Dublin Airport and Ferry Port, offering easy access to foreign team's travelling to the event.   To register your team for this event visit our Competitions page.
