Learn and Play Kayak Polo at Bellemeade Community Center’s Indoor Pool in Richmond, VA
It may be cold outside, but it’s still a great time to paddle! Stay in paddling shape and keep your skills sharp with kayak polo! We’ll host kayak polo classes and games all winter long!
Participants will be briefed in safety, the rules, and the gameplay of kayak polo. We will then split into teams consisting of four to six people. Teams will get to play multiple games each session.
Kayak polo classes are perfect for everyone from the beginner to the seasoned pro. Due to the fast-paced nature of the game, all players should have prior experience in a whitewater kayak in order to move around the pool efficiently. Not sure if you have the experience? Try out our Kayak Roll Class to learn the fundamentals of kayaking!
