The National Committee are looking to formulate the 2019 calendar as early as possible this year, to help in the organisation and marketing of all Irish competitions for the 2019 season.
Additional efforts will be made to increase the quantity of travelling teams to all Irish Canoe Polo events and to help to continue the redevelopment of the sport within Ireland.
The National Committee are also looking for Clubs to host the Irish International Open and the Irish Club Championships
The Club Champs is the qualifying event for the 2019 ECA Canoe Polo Club Championships where all Canoeing Ireland Clubs battle it out for the honor of representing Ireland on the European Stage. The 2019 European venue is still to be announced.
The host will organise and run the competition to the standards set by the national committee and complying with the ECA’s requirements. All profits go to the organisers however if qualified teams travel to the European Club Championships entry fees must be forwarded from the organiser.
The Irish Open is our biggest international competition of the canoe polo calendar which the National Committee organise and run with the help of the host club. The Committee are looking for a quality venue to host the Irish Open and would require a lend of facilities. This is the committees best way of generating funding to help develop and run the sport in Ireland.
If your Club is interested in organising it own competition or would like the opportunity to host the Irish Club Championships or the Irish International Open in 2019 please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the name of the competition, the rough dates that you would like to hold the competition on and the proposed location of the event. If all applications could be in by November the 1st it would be much appreciated.
