We are a fun, positive, and recreational dragon boat team with a bit of a competitive vibe. Our focus is to be inclusive and welcome all paddlers regardless of age, fitness level, or dragon boat experience. We cannot dragon boat this year because of the COVID-10 pandemic, so, instead, we have two options available. Option 1 consists of rotational activities such as one-person outrigger canoe practices, outdoor workouts, walks/jogs/lawn games, and virtual events. This option allows for a pay-as-you-go fee. Option 2 consists of virtual events and online fitness activities and is free once the club registration fee is paid. Our program tentatively runs from June 16 to Sept 14 (dates subject to change based on Ontario’s reopening plans and our assessment of the situation). Our coach is Natalie Wong and she is energetic, knowledgeable, and inspiring! Together, we can build a sense of belonging, inclusion, and achievement.
