**The KP Dragons MeetUp group will resume activities once the California Shelter-in-Place directive has been lifted**
Are you looking for a fun way to exercise and get fresh air? Do you enjoy teamwork and meeting friendly people? Do you like to challenge yourself? If you answered “yes” to any of these things, then KP Dragons is for you!
KP Dragons is a dragon boat club based in the heart of Oakland, California. We are comprised of members from all walks of life who want to have fun, promote a healthy lifestyle, and enjoy getting on the water to paddle. Anyone interested in trying dragon boating is always welcome to join us. KPD members can paddle for recreation or race competitively if they choose.
No prior experience is necessary, knowing how to swim isn't required, and all fitness levels can participate. We provide the equipment (paddles, life jackets/PFD, and instructions), but we recommend that you wear athletic clothing you don't mind getting a little wet, dress for the weather, bring water, and keep a towel or change of clothes for afterwards. You may want to also bring a waterproof bag for your keys and cell phone if you plan on bringing it on the boat with you.
Our team holds practices on Saturday and Sunday mornings, as well as an additional Wednesday afternoon practice for seasoned paddlers. We also participate in local and away races for members interested in paddling competitively.
