2018 National Canoe Polo Championships at West Lakes

South Australia is hosting the National Canoe Polo Championships next year at West Lakes, 30 March – 2 April 2018.

We will be seeking assistance from the South Australian canoe polo community to make the event a success.  Please advise if you are willing to be on the organising committee.  We will send out an email later this year seeking persons to help in specific areas; however please advise if you have skills or experience that you think would assist us.

We would also like to be in the position to have a South Australian team in every category, so please give some thought about representing South Australia.  Notice about the nomination/selection process will be issued towards the end of this year.
