Topic outline

  • Canoe Polo

    Canoe Polo at PNBHS
     runs all year round. Players can represent the school through organised teams, or as individuals usually at tournaments organised through the National Body.

    Junior Players (new or inexperienced players, usually younger) are all welcome and placed in teams according to their initial ability. Schools have a local in-house competition which runs through Terms 2 and 3. 

    Training for Junior Players is after school running from 3.30pm-5pm. The training starts towards the end of Term 1 and runs through Terms 2 and 3. Training is managed and supervised by adults with a coaching programme developed in collaboration with the Vikings Club who work with a number of our Senior and Junior players.

    High School Regional and National Competitions take place in Term 1 (March and April). Junior (Under 15 at 1st January) and Senior (15 and over at 1st January) are eligible with a number of teams selected to represent the school to attend each tournament.

    After Term 1, Senior Players (experienced players, usually older), often continue playing for the local Vikings Club in non-school based competitions. Some Senior players also contribute in the development of Junior players through coaching skills workshops, after school coaching and in formal coaching roles with Junior teams.
