On the 2nd day of competition is the Canoe Polo Tournament. All 8 zones playoff against each other to earn a spot in the Medal Round at the end of the day. This exciting team sport event is a crowd favourite and fun for all the teams playing a game of water polo in their kayaks.The last day of the ASG is the long distance kayak and C-2 downriver race.
