Manawatū Kiwi Canoe Polo has a membership of over 300 people, ranging from intermediate-aged students and college aged students, to adults of all ages and veterans.  We cater to a wide range of abilities from social players through to A, B and C grade National League players and even have a significant number of Central Region and New Zealand representatives.


2022 Registration for MKCP Click here



Registered club players will be affiliated to our regional body, Central Canoe Polo Association (CCPA) and to our national body, New Zealand Canoe Polo Association (NZCPA).

Members are expected to abide by our Code of Conduct

During the school terms Kiwi runs grades five nights of the week, A grade, B grade, Social grade, College grade and Intermediate Schools grade (terms 2 & 3).  The running of these grades is made possible by the range of equipment that Kiwi owns.  This equipment has been accrued over years of fundraising and donations, of which we are extremely grateful.  Everything from kayaks to buoyancy aids, goals to helmets are available for use by grade night attendees.  This gear is also available to our club teams attending out of club competitions if required.  As if that wasn’t enough, Kiwi members also give up their own time, between personal training and general life commitments to coach other teams within the club.  We believe this is key to encouraging participation and growth both within our own club and in the canoe polo community as a whole.

Our Palmerston North Men’s Representatives teams are the ‘Vikings’, and our women’s teams are the ‘Valkyries’.

General information and updates can be sent to anyone who registers an email under "Notices" below. Specific information will be sent to those who Register as Members.
