All teams need to have their players fully updated by 24th August 2018. Each player must have an up to date valid Canoeing Ireland number registered on the website for insurance reasons. If players are found to not be registered with the Canoeing Ireland, they will not be allowed play AND will forfeit their game for the team too.

Every team will need to have 2+ referees. Anyone wishing to become a referee must complete a written exam before they will be shadowed and/or assessed. We recommend this to be done straight away. We can facilitate refereeing exams, to book send us a message on facebook or email

What else do you need to know?

- Games will be 7 minutes a half. Any team not on the water at their given timeslot will concede a goal a minute up to 3 minutes at which time the match will be abandoned. In the event that a previous match has run over, a team will have 3 minutes to get on the water and be ready to start.

- We ask all teams to continue to be respectful to the pool area and ensure your boats are clean before coming in to the pool.

- At this moment in time, there is no boat storage onsite and teams will need to provide their own boats. If teams require the use of other clubs’ equipment, please contact the clubs directly.

If you have any questions, please email
