Who will be the first winner of the “Beast of the Northeast” trophy? Details to follow!

Our Fall 2016 Wednesday night youth kayak polo series has begun! Members of Boston Kayak Polo provide equipment and instruction each week. Each night starts with instruction on safe and efficient paddling, proceeds to fun activities designed to develop ball handling, shooting skills, and other skills unique to kayak polo, and ends with scrimmages that puts new skills to work!
There is still room in the pool! Interested? Contact the Watertown Boys and Girls Club at 617-926-0968 .
