Overload is a national training camp for Junior Canoe Polo players from around Ireland. Mullingar Harbour will host 150 young players aged 8 and over on September 3rd and 4th for two days of skill development, meeting new friends and having fun.
This year will be our biggest and best yet – Overload is 5 years old this year!
Non-Stop Canoe Polo
Get ready for a full weekend of learning new skills, meeting friends from other clubs and enjoying some new ways to play polo. Last year we played polo with eggs, tyre tubes, stand up paddle boards, and for our older players managed to play polo in the dark. This year we have a team of experienced fun coaches ready to show you new skills, drills, games, races, a rolling clinic, paddling clinic and when you are done with that a barbecue. And of course every participant will get a coveted 5th anniversary Overload Hoodie with a brand new design.
There will be a ‘What is polo’ session for parents that explains more about the game, how it works so you understand what all the fun is about!
The Location - Mullingar Harbour
Overload takes place at the Royal Canal Harbour in Mullingar – its a beautiful site with plenty of space on and off the water. The harbour is home to Mullingar Harbour Canoe Polo, a junior club with over 50 members and growing.
