This is a co-ed group for anyone interested in Paddling. We are primarily a Dragon Boat Club but many of our paddlers are on other teams including Outrigger Canoeing. All skill levels are welcome, all you require is a desire to get in a boat and have some fun. We have the PFD's, Paddles and the boats. Come on out! Here are some good tips for first timers; show up for practice at the Tempe Town Lake Marina wearing clothes that you would work out in and don’t mind getting wet. Bring a bottle of water, a hat and sun screen for yourself, we will provide you a paddle and a PFD (personal flotation device) to paddle in.
