The Belfast Kayak Academy are running a Junior Canoe Polo Competition in the Knockbracken Resevior in Belfast on the 8th of April 2017.
Entries will close on March 26th at Midnight.. This provides time to create and publish a timetable, check CI/CANI/BCU numbers and complete other administrative duties.
An entry fee of £40 per team is required in advance of entry to the competition. For those who enter late, a late entry fee of £70 will apply. No entry will be accepted after midnight on the 29th of March.
Teams must register their players on the entry form attached below and can pay for their teams entry in the link below.
All players must have valid CI/CANI/BCU numbers, or equivalent governing body memberships for foreign teams. Players who are not members of Canoeing Ireland or a Member of a foreign NGB will not be eligible to play.
Teams who are entering players who are under the age of 18 must ensure that they are appropriately supervised by an adult during the competition especially during the game. If a team consists entirely of players under the age of 18 they must have an adult coach/manager present for each game.
Teams must nominate 2 referees that will referee on the team's behalf. Those 2 referees are the only people who can referee on behalf of your team and cannot represent another team. They will be allocated to games during the competition. They will be timetabled to referee games that are appropriate to their refereeing ability not their playing ability. Teams will be penalised if their allocated referees/officials fail to attend their duties.
Points scored at the Easter Competition will go towards the Argento Sponsorship: for more information on how the Argento Sponsorship fund works please click on the link below.
They are running 4 Divisions:
i. “The last year an Under-19 competitor can compete is in the year that his/her nineteenth birthday (19th) birthday falls in”.
i. For example if your 19th birthday is in 2016 you are not Under-19 in 2017. If your 19th birthday is from January 1st 2017 onwards you are Under-19 for 2017.
