Kayak Polo in Portland - Outdoors - finishing up for 2021 and will resume late Spring or early Fall 2022.
Weather permitting, VACCINATED participants may join outdoor practice on Friday evenings at 5:00 until dark at Tryon Cove Park, Lake Oswego. You can also park at Rivervilla Park in Oak Grove and paddle across the river. Please contact Amy Carlson with any questions and to get on the list to receive updates.

Due to Covid-19, there are currently no known 'Open Session' pools open.
Several swimming pools offered pool time when kayakers could bring their boat to the pool for practice. This is especially helpful for people working on their roll. Swimming pools, being much warmer than the rivers, offer the opportunity for repetition without getting a "brain freeze". Be sure to rinse your boat, inside and out, before putting it in the pool. Many pools require helmets for safety, not only for boaters, but for anyone in the water during kayak time, so be sure to bring yours.

Every winter, OKCC rents a local pool to provide pool sessions for kayakers. If you're working on your roll or other skills, you'll find friendly OKCC members who will help you. If you join or renew your OKCC membership at the pool, then that pool session is free. Check the OKCC users group - which is in the process of moving from Yahoo to Groups.io - or find us on Facebook for information about pool sessions. Alternatively, email us for more information.
