What we're about

Get fit & learn how to dragon boat! And have some fun on the water too! This is a water sport that is affordable and a sure way to get you going!

ALL ages and different fitness backgrounds welcome! No experience required! Just come and join us on the water for some fun times!

NOTE: In these times of COVID-19, we are now running Virtual Programs for both fitness and paddle technique over Zoom. Our current program runs May and June over 8 weeks and has 4 sessions a week (Strength class, Cardio class, Yoga class, and Dragon Boat Paddling classes).

This meetup group is part of the Rusty Dragons Adventures organization - a not-for-profit organization that supports wellness & fitness within the community. The purpose of the organization is to introduce new paddlers to this awesome sport!

Dragon Boat Virtual Meetup - State of the Sport Discussion

Whether you are a current dragon boat paddler or thinking about joining in the future, this informational meeting and discussion will talk about the COVID-19 impact to the dragon boat scene so far in both Canada and the USA, and beyond. Of course, everyone's health and safety come first before dragon boating, so we hope everyone is taking care of themselves and their families. But we all need a light at the end of the tunnel to look towards. As a regatta organizer, a club owner (13 teams - 250 members), a coach (2 teams), and an avid paddler (19 years, locally and internationally), I know the COVID-19 pandemic has caused us all to pause and think about the future. Our club's focus at the Rusty Dragons is recreational paddling for anyone of ANY ability. We have paddlers of all ages, shapes, sizes, experience levels, fitness levels, etc. We also have teams who share something in common, whether being a breast cancer survivor, being visually or hearing impaired, or having an intellectual/developmental disability. We know other teams and clubs are struggling and uncertain of the future. There is hope and there is help. The silver lining in this period of lock-down is that more people are actually reaching out and seeing each other more than before. Nothing beats seeing everyone in person and training and especially racing together. We will get there again. Some discussion will be on back-to-paddling protocols and any other questions that come up. Feel free to submit questions in advance to [masked]. The focus of the meeting is dragon boating, not politics. :) Take care y'all! Tim
