Overload! 2020

Mullingar Harbour Canoe Polo
15th and 16th August 2020

Mullingar Harbour Canoe Polo invite you to the third Overload! training camp on 15th and 16th August, 2020.   Registrations close July 19th. 

What is Overload! ?

It’s all Polo fun all weekend, but with some twists – the event will be packed with Canoe Polo activities – skills, drills, games, races, more games, rolling clinic, paddling clinic, barbecues, burgers, hot dogs, dog races (not the same dogs), canoe polo with obstacles, and some other entertaining activities.

Who is it for ?

The event is open to Canoe Polo players aged 8-18.  You must be a Canoeing Ireland or CANI member.    This year, to ensure safety while complying with COVID 19 guidelines, participants must  ;

  • be able to capsize and wet-exit their kayak with confidence (or receive a t-rescue or do self-rescue)
  • be paddling as a member of a Club for more than 1 year. If you are paddling less than 1 year, you must have a recommendation from your club coach or junior development coach and contact develop@canoepolo.ie before registering. 
  • be able to swim 10m with confidence while wearing a buoyancy aid

Unfortunately we cannot accommodate the new beginners/come-and-try session this year.

One or Two-Days

This is a 2 day event on Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th August.    If you can only make it on one day, that’s fine just select the one-day ticket below to come on the Saturday 15th only.

Something for Parents

This year we are going to build on last years parents session (not sure we will have the tractor tyres, but we will come up with something!) that helps explain how the game works.

Tee-Shirts

As if you needed more, Tee-Shirt is included free for all Juniors. (available for purchase for adults).

Food

We hope to have a barbecue for everyone on Saturday evening in the Harbour and lunch on Sunday.

COVID-19

The event may be a little different this year, with Social Distancing and Hygiene a key part of the safety so some off-water activities may be different than previous years.  We will do our best to make it fun and enjoyable, but for everyones safety we will be adhering to HSE Rules and Sport Ireland and Canoeing Ireland guidelines.  Detailed protocol will be published prior to the event.

Equipment

This year, there will be no sharing of equipment between participants (kayaks, buoyancies, paddles etc.) – players are asked to bring their own equipment or borrow from their club,  and will be allocated a spot to put their equipment between activities.  We understand some players may not have personal equipment or be able to borrow from their club- please contact develop@canoepolo.ie and we’ll get you what you need.

Camping

Limited camping space is available  for those travelling long distances only (>1 hour drive).    You may not camp without registering and will have to follow direction from stewards on where you can setup your tent.   You may not set up your tent before 5pm on Saturday and must take down before 10am the next morning.  This is to facilitate maximum free space for social distancing during the day.  If your children are camping, then parent/guardian will be responsible for them.   Social distancing must be maintained and under no circumstance should members of different households camp in the same tent.  Camping is subject to confirmation.

Schedule:

Saturday 9.30am-6pm (includes barbecue)  (Children will be put in groups – you may be asked to arrive at a different time to limit players arriving at same time)

Sunday 10.00am – 4pm (includes lunch)

Cancellation 

This is a volunteer run event (not an airline!).  If the event is cancelled, for example due to COVID related Government Restrictions, we will re-arrange it for another date and apply any money paid to that new date, or at your option, send you a tee-shirt in lieu of participation.
