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. While we haven’t taken part in dragon boating in the past 2 years because of the Covid pandemic, in 2022, we are excited to get back into a dragon boat and bond together as a team. We come together to practice and race to achieve realistic and collective goals. We care about improving our own performance every time, no matter where or who we are up against. Practices take place once a week from May to September. Our coach is Natalie Wong, and she is energetic, knowledgeable and inspiring! Together, we can build a sense of belonging, inclusion and achievement.
