Canoeing Ireland Executive Resignation
At a recent meeting of the Canoeing Ireland Board the Executive resigned their position. The staement from the board is available at Statement.
The Canoe Polo Calendar is still being worked on. The proposed dates are available at canoe.ie/en-us/competition/raceseventscalendar.aspx.

The calendar will be updated on canoepolo.ie once the new website is developed.
New Website being developed
The Website is under development and the new website shall make it easier for Committee members to edit the content and keep it up-to-date.

Some of the data is currently out -of - date but will be updated with the new site.

Any suggestion for content for the site can be sent to committee@canoepolo.ie

Irish Open 2013
It has now been 10 years since the National Committee held the European Canoe Polo Championships in Kilcock. It has also been 5 years since we last had the Irish Open at this venue.

To celebrate the anniversary of the Europeans the National Committee has decided to return to Kilcock for the 2013 Irish Open.

A sub-committee has been put together to organise the 2013 Irish Open and ensure it is run to our best standards. The sub committee is made up of 2 members of the National Committee, and a member from each of the local clubs in the area, North Kildare and Kilcock.

Each member will have equal standing, bringing both local expertise for location specific arrangements and national expertise for organising a flagship event targeted at a large audience.

The planned dates for the Irish Open 2012 is the 31st August and 1st September.
Worlds Masters Games 2013

Canoe Polo (Male – Female - Open)

Grades of competitions for Canoa Polo:
Competitive: will be comprised of two divisions – men and women.
Recreational: will be one open division, ie. teams can be men’s, women’s or a combination (in any male/female ratio) and will play against each other.

Canoe Polo: 30+, 45+ (Male – Female - Open)
Age determined at 31 December 2013. The age of the youngest paddler in a boat will determine the age category of the crew.

DATES: 6-8 August

Anyone interested in playing should contact director@canoepolo.ie
As you may know the national committee owns two sets of canoe polo boats available for developing clubs. These most recently have been loaned to Thomastown and Goya Gang who have participated in summer comps and are competing in the Munster League and GCPL at the moment.

We would like to see more clubs participating in canoe polo and this equipment may help clubs get started. Unlike the Rotobats these boats are fit for competition.

The terms and conditions and boat request forms are attached. We have had informal enquiries but we would encourage clubs to make a formal request soon if interested.

Old Rotabats
The National Committee also has an old set of Rotabats that the committee are writing off. If there are any clubs interested in taking these boats for a nominal fee then can they contact develop@canoepolo.ie.
If there is anyone interested in training for one of the three Canoe Polo Squads: Senior Men, Senior Women or U21 Men, can they contact the Squad Liaison Officer who will send then a Winter training schedule and put them in touch with the relevent management team.
Ladies Canoe Polo Session in Galway
Sat 23rd March is ladies polo day in Galway (equivalent of Ballina session last year). Keep the date in your calendar.
