Taking place at Molonglo Reach from April 19 – 21, the event will attract around 200 athletes plus team support crews to Canberra. The excitement surrounding the Championships has been building for many months now, with recent Australian Canoe Polo Summer Series events providing an insight into the high levels of intensity and professionalism that can be expected within all games taking place over the Easter long weekend.
This year’s National Championships are set to be the largest in 5 years. Thirty-one teams from ACT, NSW, QLD, SA and VIC will be competing at the National Championships in seven divisions: Micro Juniors (u13), Juniors (u16 boys and u18 girls), Youth (u21), Women’s, Open, Veterans (+35yrs) and Masters (+45yrs). The event organizing committee is also extremely proud to announce that this year’s junior division will be the largest at an Australian Canoe Polo National Championships in the past 8-10 years.
Spectators at the event will enjoy tremendous displays of teamwork, physical power, and boat skills by all competing teams. The National Championships are also the final selection event for the Australian Men’s Canoe Polo team, which will be venturing to Thury-Harcourt, France in September to compete at the 2014 ICF Canoe Polo World Championships.
