What we're about

If you are 18 to 60+, looking for camaraderie and a work out on the water, look no further! Whether a beginner or experienced or never been part of a team, experience the camaraderie and fun of a dragon boat team.

Our practice season is April to October, in the Delaware River in Edgewater Park, NJ. During the season you have the option to attend all practices offered to the club. We will enter approximately 4 - 6 races in a season. Races are optional to attend. All equipment such as paddles and life vests are included. Just bring water, wear study water shoes and dress in layered clothing on cooler days. Be prepared to work up a sweat! Paddling is hard work!!

Our Mission:

We are a non-profit educational sports team. Our goal is to reach out to the community to educate in fitness, sportsmanship and teamwork using the sport of dragon boating. We also plan to work within the community with other non-profits organizations providing our resources! Our mission states our EFFECT and all while having fun together!

As a Non-profit organization, our Trustees volunteer their time and effort to accomplish the many tasks to run South Jersey Dragon Boat Club. We will reach out to companies and organizations for sponsorships and in gratitude will offer team building events or promotional advertising.

See what kind of EFFECT you can have within Yourself and the Community!!

Come Join us when we start to post Open Houses. Attending an Open House is free and a great way to meet our team and decide if a membership is right for you!
