The JAX Fire Dragons, founded in May 2012, is the oldest and most successful premier competitive dragon boat racing club in North Florida. It is comprised of 65+ members, including  10 US Dragon Boat Federation certified coaches and 2 Team USA members. We race each season in 7-8 Dragon Boat festivals where we have proven ourselves to be one of Florida's top teams and a consistent medal winner. A highlight in our short history was the JAX Fire Dragons winning the right to represent the Southeast Regional Dragon Boat Association at the World Club Crew Championship in Ravenna, Italy where our competitive mixed crew and our Women's crew, CHIX with STIX, competed against the best in the world in September 2014. 2014 was a tremendous year for us and we are already off to a great start in 2015.  It is this kind of dedicated training and experience that has helped to make us the quality organization we are today.

We invite all types of paddlers to join our crews: competitive mixed, competitive all women, breast cancer survivors, fun and fitness and youth.  Our very experienced coaching staff will teach you proper stroke technique, race strategies and specialized physical conditioning for our sport.

We supply the training, the boats, paddles, and lifejackets. Just bring yourself and some water and be prepared to burn up to 1,000 calories per practice for a great full body workout! Waiver and info sheet must be signed before you can get on a boat.

We do have operating costs that include insurance, equipment, maintenance, SRDBA fees, etc. but our fees are very affordable. What have you got to lose? Come out and get bit by the dragon!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
