When they are not out on the open water, The Navy section of CCF work on floatation training. Pupils took part in Kayak polo in the School pool, which combines boating and ball handling skills. The ball can be thrown by hand, or flicked with the paddle to pass between players and shoot at the goal. Tactics and positional play are as important as the speed and fitness of the individual athletes. The game requires excellent teamwork and promotes both general kayaking skills and a range of other techniques unique to the sport. The pupils can also work on capsize techniques as required.
