502 Dragon Boat Open Community Paddle Sessions

Do you love dragon boat? We'd love to have you join us! (Ages 12+)

Never heard of dragon boat before? Don't worry, many people are in the same boat ;)

These sessions are GREAT for beginners! Our coaches will work with you to make sure you're familiar with boat safety, dragon boat basics, and technique. 

Dragon boat is all about teamwork! So the good news is, if you're on the boat, and your paddle is hitting the water at the same time as everyone else, you are helping to power the boat. The goal is to get everyone working together, and then build technique. We'll be sure to give you all the tools to get there and train at the casual or competitive level.

ALL equipment is provided, and ALL fitness levels are welcome!

We have the boat, coaches, steersperson, lifejackets, paddles, and water for paddlers. (Though you're also welcome to bring your own)

We also have corporate and community team building experiences available. If you're interested in booking a session for your group please contact us.

Do you have more questions about practices sessions? Please review our Practice FAQ page below, and feel free to reach out if there is anything that we can do to help. We hope to see you on the boat soon!

This is a Job Description. Briefly describe your specific position, including details about important achievements and milestones. Make sure to include relevant skills and highlights, and don't forget to adjust the timeframe in the subtitle.

What to wear?

Please wear what you would feel comfortable working out in, and things that you would not mind getting wet! Quick dry materials are great. Water shoes are recommended, but not required. Tennis shoes are ok, but may get soggy.  You may want to wear a hat, or sunglasses. Please make sure it is not your favorite pair, as sometimes they do fall off into the water and are hard to retrieve.

What to bring?

We have all the equipment you'll need, though you're welcome to bring your own dragon boat paddle, lifejacket, and water if you'd like! 

You may want to bring an extra set of clothes, and towel.

We have a dry bag for small personal belongings such as keys and phones. We recommend leaving valuables at home and larger items in the car.

If you have any medical conditions, requirements, or medications that need to be on the boat with you please let one of our coaches know at the session, or you can send us a message.
