The Canadian Dragons are a competitive dragon boat team who welcome all new paddlers. Experience is not required, and while physical fitness is a key component of the sport, people of all levels of fitness, age, nationality and interest are welcome to pick up a paddle and join us in the boat.
Training lasts for two hours per session and is held in the Kallang Basin (see map below). Generally, we practice on Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning, with Thursday night land training (Hour of Power) for most of the season. Check the Practice Schedule for the exact days and times.
At most practices, we also have a boat for absolute beginners that goes out with an experienced coach and helmsman. Feel free to contact us if you need more information or feel free to sign up if you know you want to come down.
- 1.5L of water
- Clothes and shoes that you don’t mind getting wet
- Hat/Towel/ Sun block
We practice rain or shine (you’re going to get wet anyway). Trial Practice* is $15 per session, including drinks, beer and the occasional barbecue.
*Note: Trial practice is for 3 sessions, after which it would be awesome if you decide to continue the fun and join our club.
