We are a competitive women's dragon boat team. We are recruiting athletic women to join us. We have 3 levels of competitive crews. We train and stay together all year in order to be the best that we can be -as a team, as crews and as individual athletes.
We are an established club team comprising women from the greater Philly and South Jersey areas.
We are supportive and empowering women, aged 20-something to 70-something.
Our members are from all walks of life - teachers, moms, scientists, doctors, students, artsy-fartsy types, designers, techies, therapists... you get the picture.
Our coaching staff supports and trains athletes at all levels - world class to fitness paddlers. We also have a crew specifically for Breast Cancer Survivors and senior paddlers
We practice on the beautiful Schuylkill River and work out together in the greater Philadelphia Area. During the Dragon Boat season, our competitive crews travel to compete with other women's dragon boat teams.
Our on-water season typically runs from April - October. But we train all year round in the gym or the paddle pool in order to BURN WATER during the regular season!
3 kinds of crews
Competitive crews, Phoenix Red,Phoenix CRUSH andPhoenix Orange, race other women's dragon boat teams at Dragon Boat Festivals and Regattas.
Fitness paddlers - join our practices and work-outs to keep fit and have fun
Breast Cancer Survivor Team - Did you know that there is a whole division of dragon boat racing made just for breast cancer survivor teams? Our Against the Wind crew is a FIERCE bunch of Chicks with Sticks and a floating support system in one!
Look for our Dragon Boat Draft Weeks on the Meet-Up calendar. These are scheduled once every couple months. We recruit our talent year-round for ALL Crews - Red, Orange, Fitness Paddlers and Against the Wind.
