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 14+ 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.

Orlando Dragon Boat Club was featured on CNN in April 2017 as part of the CNN Staying Well segment.

Get your company involved! We can accomodate your company team with boat, steersperson, coach and time on the water to prepare for the GWN Orlando International Dragon Boat Festival at Turkey Lake every year in October.

Sunday FUN Paddle - Great For First Timers!

Needs a location

This is a Sunday FUN Paddle! Come out to paddle around Lake Fairview for an hour and listen to music while you socialize and get a workout!

CURRENT PRACTICE REQUIREMENTS DURING COVID:

  1. We are filling boats to capacity. If we have more than 20 people signed up, I will then work on finding a second steer for an additional boat.

  2. Preference will be given to paid members first. Two days before the event, nonmembers will be moved over to attending if we have the seats. If you sign up for practice but do not show up, you will be placed in a holding pattern for an indeterminate amount of time to allow others who are more punctual to attend.

  3. Masks are not required however please practice caution.

  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 allowing Club lifevests to be used however you must disinfect the vest after use. We have Lysol and other cleaning agents.

  6. 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 2021 will need to be signed by all paddlers, both new and old.

~~~~~~

Are you ready to take the dragon boat challenge!?!

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.
