Canoe Polo is an exciting team event played on 35m x 23m pitches set up in swimming pools or on flat stretches of water. Teams of 5 paddlers endeavour to score goals in a net suspended 2m above the water, the ball being thrown by hand, or ‘flicked’ with the paddle. Naturally, the team with the most goals at the end of the match wins the game.

Volunteers are a critical part of any sporting organisation and there are plenty of opportunities to help to develop and grow our sport. Here are some of the ways you could help:
- Take a role on the Committee. With over 15 different roles you are bound to find something that fits your skills.
- Help out at Melbourne Comp
- We need pool coordinators for both Tuesday and Wednesday nights.
- We need experienced players and referees to help develop skills and understanding of the game on Wednesday nights.
- Learn to referee, with some great online refereeing resources available, get stuck in and give it a go. There are always people around who are willing to help and guide new referees.
- Help out in the summer competitions. These great competitions don’t organise themselves, they occur because of the great work of a few dedicated volunteers. Ask your club or one of the committee how you can help. Even the smallest things can make a difference sometimes.
- Good at marketing and promotion? Get in touch! We are constantly on the lookout for new ideas and ways of doing things to attract more people to the sport.
Please get in touch with any of the Committee members if you want to help.
The Committee is made up of volunteers and meets regularly throughout the year to develop and promote the sport. Following this year’s General Meeting a number of pivotal roles changed hands and we saw ourselves with an almost brand new committee. If you think you can help out in any way you don’t need to wait until the next General Meeting to get involved. Contact any of the Committee members for more information about helping out.
