Beginner Dragon Boat Practice - Saturday at Noon - Miami Rowing Club

  • February 16, 2013 · 12:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

IMPORTANT NOTE: These events will fill up on a regular basis.  We may or may not be able to accommodate everyone on any given weekend, and there will often be a waiting list on the event.  Please be courteous and update your responses if your plans change, so you're not taking up someone's seat.

The new member boat will meet up by the boat promptly at noon. Our coaches will then go over the basics of dragon boating with you on land, do some basic stretches and then we will get on the dragon boat and learn by doing! No previous skill required. Puff provides life vests, seat cushions and paddles. We recommend bringing a bottle of water, sun screen and to wear clothing that you will be OK exercising in and getting splashed with water. Shades, gloves and hat are worn by most of our paddlers as well but are not required. Practice lasts roughly 2 hours.

If you do not see a large number of attendees, don't worry. Our member's only practice is right before the new member boat and veterans join the practice to teach and encourage you on your first dragon boat experience!

    Hi Lynn, we try to alternate the beginner practices between Saturdays and Sundays, depending on other events. This event is created as a recurring Saturday series, and I update the date/time a week or so in advance if it's different from the default. We have some other events going on the next few weeks, so I'm not sure if we'll do Sundays; I'm still trying to sort that out. Are you only available Sundays?

    Hi Hilda, yes, turn left like you're turning into the marine stadium, then right on the access road parallel to the causeway. It ends in the MRC parking lot.
