The Calgary Kayak Club organizes Kayak Polo throughout the Fall and Winter as a way to keep in shape, enjoy some friendly competition and improve upon our paddling skills.  It gives us an opportunity to paddle during when there is not enough daylight or water flowing in the rivers.

We have several different polo opportunities available, including weekly evening sessions, Sunday night Polo development, and our yearly Red Beard Tournaments.
