What we're about

Dragon Boating is the fastest growing water sport in the world, and is a great way to enjoy the outdoors, get a tremendous workout and make new friends. This group is for anyone between the ages of 14-114 and all fitness levels are encouraged to join. This can be a regular part of your workout routine or you can become a serious Dragon Boater and join our racing team, ScORCh.

A recent news story on our Swat/Teen "Dueling Dragons" team that practices at our club.

Get your company involved! We can accomodate your company team with boat, steersperson, coach and time on the water to prepare for the Walgreens International Dragon Boat Festival at Disney every year in October or the Central Florida Dragon Boat Festival every year in April.

Orlando Health Executives and doctors make Dragon Boating part of their team building activities.

Saturday Morning Awesome Practice

Orlando Dragon Boat Club

CURRENT PRACTICE REQUIREMENTS DURING COVID: 1. We are limiting the number of paddlers on a boat to 10 plus the steer. I am reducing the number of people on the Meetups and there will be a waitlist. If we get more than 10 people signing up, I will then work on finding a second steer for an additional boat. Preference will be given to paid members. Reach out to me if you have questions. 2. Paddlers will sit one per row, alternating sides. 3. All paddlers must wear a mask or buff throughout practice. You must have it on, not on the seat, not beside you but on your face. If you show up to practice without a mask you may not get on the boat. No exceptions. We are planning on having buffs for purchase, not to borrow. 4. Boat and Club equipment must be wiped down after use. No exceptions. We will supply the cleaning agents (EPA registered, professional grade) in order to do so. If you leave without cleaning equipment, your name will be jotted down, you will be talked to and there is a possibility that you may be put on a waitlist for future practices. We are not playing around with this. 5. We are not allowing use of the Club lifevests. This means you must bring your own. You cannot use one from the shed. With Lysol in short supply we cannot spray down the vests. Bring your own pfd or vest. 6. You will need to arrive at the lake 15 minutes prior to practice. We will be taking forehead temperature readings before you get on the boat. Unlike in the past, we will not swing by the dock to pick you up if you are late for this reason. You will need your temperature taken before you touch the boat. 7. Waivers for 2020 will need to be signed by all paddlers, both new and old. Ready to take the dragon boat challenge? Join ODBC coaching staff for an Intermediate/Advanced practice on Saturdays at 8:30am to 9:30am. The coaching staff will work together and will follow a program that will get us ready to race and also give paddlers a great full body workout. This hour is a practice open to paddlers of all levels of expertise. We highly recommend Saturdays for new paddlers. You will receive one-on-one instruction to help you grow as a paddler. We plan on getting a great exercise session while having fun on the water. This practice will consist of 60 minutes of workout starting with a 5-10 minute warm up, speed and endurance drills, focus on developing muscle memory and proper technique with continuous paddling and at different levels of intensity. Outdoor Fun * Great Exercise * New Friends

This practice is an open practice and recommended for all paddlers even those that have never paddled before. First timers can "check us out for free" 4 times. After that, it is $125 for 6mo or $150/yr plus you also get a racing shirt! First Timers need to arrive at least 15-30 minutes early! Also you need to click on the MORE>FILES tab at the top of the web page and download the waivers. Bring your completed form with you. You will also need water to drink on the boat. Paddles, pfd's and the boat are provided. Our typical practice consists of a 5-10 minute warm-up paddle at 50% intensity. We will vary the practice to enhance our endurance for races and focus on elements that need work based on the coach's assessment of our progress. Each practice has a mixture of fairly intense workouts and a whole bunch fun. Outdoor Fun * Great Exercise * New Friends
