Dragon Boat Training

DRAGON BOAT TEAMS AND EVENTS FORM THE CORE of paddling programs at the Fairway Gorge Paddling Club (FGPC).

FGPC Club-Sponsored Dragon Boat Teams

Teams consist of 20 or more paddlers, with provision for “spares,” a steersperson, a coach and a drummer. Practices are 1.5 hours in length. All teams are encouraged to participate in dragon boat festivals, and some festival entries are included with club-sponsored teams. We provide club-sponsored teams with coaches, steering assistance and administrative support including flexible paddler payment options, fundraising opportunities, festival registrations and inter- and intra-team communications systems.
