HOW TO CREATE A TEAM

 

Creating a team is fun and rewarding!

 

Here are the ingredients for a great Dragon Boat Team:

  • A Team Captain to organize, lead and motivate!

  • A Drummer who will dress with team spirit and keep a steady rhythm from the start line to the finish line.

  • 20 Paddlers who enjoy the power of working together in unison.

  • We’ll provide the steerer (unless you have an experienced steerer on your team)

 

Watch this video for an overview of dragon boating and how to form a team:

Once you are registered, we will be in regular contact with you to make sure that you have all the information you need to prepare for Race Day including how to book a practice slot the week before the event, and what to bring to the Festival.

As you recruit paddlers, please make sure they sign a waiver form. Every paddler must have a waiver form signed before they can take to the water during practice week and race day.
