What we're about

If you have never tried the sport of dragon boating or if you have never paddled with the Baltimore Dragon Boat Club before, we'd love to have you come out and paddle with us!

*************

People paddle with us for many reasons. The main reason is EXERCISE! Dragon boating is great for your mind, body and soul as you work on increasing your muscle strength and cardiovascular fitness. The training is adjustable to all experience levels and our team members will work with you on technique and overall fitness goals. BDBC has open practices that allow new people to try their hand at paddling. No experience is necessary. BDBC welcomes paddlers of all skill sets--men and women, younger and older (must at least be 10 years of age). Whether your interest is recreational or competitive, our coaching staff will train you in safety, timing, and technique until you're zipping through the water, paddling in perfect unison with your teammates, 20 paddles one boat!

The first practice that you attend is free and each additional practice after that is $5.00. If you decide to join the club, membership costs $125 per season.

*** If you are interested in joining us for a practice but are hesitant to do so because it looks like there are only a small handful of people signed up to attend, please be aware that we typically have between 30 and 40 people show up for open practices. We manage our practice attendance via an app called Team Snap. If you attend a practice and find that you like it so much that you would like to attend another, we will send you an invitation to Team Snap so you can sign up for future practices and learn about other club events. We use Meetup to attract new paddlers and make people aware of our club, not really to manage attendance. ***

Hope to see you there!
