For all ages, the recreational Dragon Boat team is a great team to jump in on if you’re interested in trying the sport of dragon boat paddling.
This team also includes the CANCER SURVIVOR team. Breast cancer survivors’ dragon boating is an international movement inspired by the research of Canadian sports medicine specialist Don McKenzie. Survivors of breast cancer join together to paddle dragon boats to the benefit of their physical health and social wellbeing.
Race Season: January thru November
Sunday’s 8:15am to 11am and Wednesdays 5:15pm to 7:00pm (Daylight Savings Time)
Once Daylight Savings changes, practices are held on Sunday’s only rain or shine.
Price: An NAC Annual Membership is required and a one time fee of $200 for the Dragon Boat Team dues and $60/yr for NAC facility fees.
Requirements: A desire to be a team player, to have fun, and to work out.
CLOTHES: We may wade knee-deep getting the boat in and out of the water. Plus, possible mild splashing while paddling. Pants or shorts should be lightweight (lycra or nylon) and allow maximum movement. In cool months, breathable layers with a light waterproof jacket is ideal
FOOTWEAR: Aqua socks if you have them. Otherwise, just a pair of flip-flops or barefoot will be fine
MISC: A bottle of water and sunscreen. New paddlers will be able to borrow a paddle and–if they wish–a life jacket
