kayak games

twice a month we have a roll session in NM. after the first hour half the pool is used for games and half is used for more skill practice. for games we play kayak polo and ultimate Frisbee. we don't were protective gear but play with paddles. we are just paddlers looking for and are all different levels. we are board of are current games and want some new ideas. maybe some sort of tag game or monkey in the middle game... any ideas?

Pool slalom is fun though the setup is time intensive and many find it boring. Practice this: Makes for good upper arm strength. And there is the age old, Marco Polo! lol. May as well just play straight up football (American style).
On the river, I can abandon who I am and what I've done. However brief it lasts, while on the river I am nothing important and everything insignificant. I am flotsam, and happy to be so.

Paddle tag is a hoot and you can bend the rules to suit your liking. Essentially, the rules are the same as tag except the person who is it can only tag another person by touching paddle blades (not shafts). No holding or pushing of your opponent's paddle and no skirt pulling, but pretty much everything else is fair game. Fun for extended flat water sections or in a pool. Helmets recommended.

*As the game gets boring you can spice it up a bit with additional rules:
-Only use the left blade for tagging.
-Must perform an offside roll, cartwheel, or squirt before tagging someone new.
-No tag backs.
-If you are tagged, but manage to flip the person who tagged you before they get away they are still it.

Have Fun!
