Overload is a national training camp for Junior Canoe Polo players from around Ireland.  Mullingar Harbour will host young players aged 8 and over on August 26th and 27th for two days of skill development, meeting new friends and having fun.

This year will be our biggest and best yet – Overload is 6 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 Canoe Polo’ and Referee training sessions for parents that want to learn more about the game and get involved in their clubs  – and so they 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 80 members and growing.

Camping space is available onsite from 4pm Saturday and is free of charge, but you must request it when registering.   If your children are camping, then you, or a designated guardian, or supervisor will be responsible for them. 

All car parking will be in the adjacent carpark at Loreto College.

How do I take part

Registration includes a 2023 Overload Hoodie, Barbecue on Saturday, Lunch on Sunday, and a load of fun memories.
