GSCC have in the past entered one or two teams into the Yorkshire Canoe Polo League, but for various reasons we haven’t had a team for a few years now, and we’d like to change that.
Let us know you are Interested in playing!
If you think you’d like to part of our team(s), in the first instance please simply let us know of your interest. You can email email@example.com, comment on this post on our Facebook page, or tell one of the coaches at the river.
It is open to any age, male and female. The only pre-requisites are you are happy wearing a spray deck and can control a kayak! You do not need to roll but you do need to be able to be “T” rescued.
We need a minimum of 8 for a squad, with 5 playing during the match. Matches are usually played indoor in York on a few Saturday nights during the winter months. If we have enough interest we can train towards entering a team for the 2023/24 season, so that’s a year from now (It is too late to enter for the 2022/23 season that starts soon. However, we may be able to arrange some friendlies, or stand in for a scratched team at York).
Polo is an exciting and demanding team sport and will bring on your personal paddling skills no end!
This is only an expression of interest at the moment, no commitment yet, so please get in touch if you are interested in playing.
