Our dragon boat crew came together in 1996, formed by a group of friends in New York City. Searching for an outlet for our irrepressible competitive spirit, we came together to test ourselves against the best in the competitions. Every spring through fall, we can be found spending our weekend mornings practicing in a never ending struggle to improve. But that doesn't mean we don't have fun! To be Xtreme means not only to work hard, but to play hard. Besides the weekly practices, there are also team events. There are meetings, dinners, outings and our annual team barbecue. It's because we combine the best of teamwork, competitiveness and fun that Xtreme NY has grown every year. Since 1996, we have grown from a handful of people to over 60 members. We are always happy to open our arms to anyone willing to make the commitment to our organization. And in return, that person doesn't just become a member of a team, that person becomes a part of the Xtreme NY family.
