CANOE POLO FOR YOUR STUDENTS
Canoe Polo Schools Programme
- balance and body co-ordination
- hand-eye co-ordination
- boat control – harder than you might think, these small craft (refered to as BAT – baths advanced trainers) are hard to keep in a straight line as they have no keel line and are built to turn quickly
- paddle control – upper body flexibility as well as engaging core muscle groups
- ball skills – throwing and catching when sitting in a kayak floating on the water is powerful way to engage your muscles and brain in co-ordinated action
What does it involve?
A school with students and teacher who are keen to learn about this fast and exciting sport
