Beginners Practice

The dragons are back!  We invite you to come out and meet the DC Dragon Boat Club members and experience paddling first hand.

What to expect: You will warm up with the club and other beginning paddlers.  We will then get on the water for about an hour and free paddle, teach you the stroke technique, and the mechanics of paddling in a race. You can find more information about the sport and what to expect on our website at

What to bring: Bring water and dress appropriately for the water and the weather.  Should the weather be cold it's best to wear layers of non-cotton clothing.



Paddles Up!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
