GUNS n ROSES


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 come together to practice and race to achieve a realistic and collective goal. We care about beating 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.
