Bayou City Outdoors
Kayak Polo & Rolling Practice - in one!
8:00 PM – 10:00 PM
CLCCA Kermet H. Applewhite Sports and Recreation Center
16511 Diana Lane, Houston , TX 77062
Two awesome events in one evening!!
Need to practice that kayak roll? Don't have a roll and want to learn how? We have lots of kayakers who are always looking for guinea pigs (whoops, we mean students) who want a little help. We will be practicing our rolls from 8:00 to 8:30 while we get the Polo court set up. @ 8:30...
...it is baaaack!!! Houston Kayak Polo (aka: Water Hockey)
we are playing at Clear Lake City Community Association indoor pool this season!
Haven't played before? Two teams of five to ten players paddle kayaks and pass a water polo ball using their hands and paddle. The object of the game is to throw the ball into the goal of the opposing team & to have a whole lot of fun while you are doing it. Players cannot paddle while holding onto the ball. They can only hold the ball for five seconds before they must pass or dribble. While one team passes the ball... who needs rules??
(you'll need to know how to roll or wet exit)
see the what the Chron has to say about Kayak Polo and BCO:
If you can't get there at 8:00 don't worry, just get there when you can.
**Important Insurance Info**
We must carry insurance to play at this pool (we might have a reputation) - we are being insured by the awesome American Canoe Association. IF you are an ACA Member bring your card - it is free for members. If you are not an ACA member bring $5 cash - that is the cost of your insurance. Better yet - join ACA and let them know you are a Bayou City Outdoors member and your membership is only $30 for a full year instead of the standard $40 per year.

Don't forget - If you can arrive at 8:00 pm here will be rolling practice as a warm-up exercise before the game! Don't hurry away when you finish because afterwards we will grab a beer at Molly’s Pubs. This Event is $13 for members and $18 for non-members + pay your own food and drink at Mollys. Please bring $5 cash for insurance if you are not an ACA member.

Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?
Typically most BCO events are for adults. But, we do love kids. If you believe your child is capable of keeping up with the group, no problem. AND if this is a bike ride they MUST wear a helmet. Questions? Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?
We add parking details to the Event descriptions.
What can/can't I bring to the event?
If the temperature is above 80 or it very clearly says "No Dogs" then please don't bring your dog. We LOVE dogs and only make this rule if we feel there could be a safety concern (for the dogs of course:).
BIKE: If it is a bike ride: Bring a helmet or borrow one from us. Helmets are the single most important piece of gear you can have on a bike ride. Anyway, any time you are wearing a helmet you must be having fun!
Bring water. Frequently our events are in the woods or out of the way. Water is important.
HIKE: If it is a hiking event wear comfortable shoes. Athletic shoes, hiking boots, running shoes, just be sure your feet will be happy.
SOCIAL: If it is a social event? Wear whatever YOU feel comfortable in. We are an eclectic mix of people with all types of interests and jobs. People will come straight from work in a suit or jeans, straight from running or working out, and some of us even come cleaned up straight from the shower! (and everything in between)
Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?
