The Rusty Dragons are excited to form the new competitive team "Barracudas" in our 15th year as a club. This will be our first team where interested paddlers don't automatically make the team, and are instead selected to join the team based on a published list of criteria and basic fitness testing.

This team is meant to provide motivated paddlers on existing once-a-week teams who want more, with the opportunity to join this team.  As a result, paddlers must already be a member in good standing for another full season team whose schedule is not in conflict with the Barracudas.

2021 Jan 02 Update: Registration for all teams for 2021 will not open until we develop a safe plan to proceed. Rest assured this is a core team we want to develop.  Contact Tim if you have any questions about the team at tim @  For now, we are leaving up the old details for 2020 so you get a sense of what this new team is all about.


This is the fifth year for this team. Join us and spend your summer months enjoying the paddling, camaraderie, and fresh air on waterfront that comes with this team. New this year is monthly video review - where we take video of team paddling and can look at it later to identify areas where the team can improve. This is an invaluable tool to becoming a better team. We have two dedicated co-captains identified very early on to help plan for an amazing year!
