FGPC Corporate Dragon Boat Teams


FGPC’s 2020 summer season is affected by COVID-19, and program changes should be expected. CLICK HERE for details about how FGPC is addressing programs and events for the coming season.

Why Paddle?

Want to race dragon boats as part of a corporate or company program? Consider a FGPC corporate dragon boat racing program. We supply all the necessary equipment and provide a coach and steersperson.

Dragon boat paddling offers a unique opportunity to engage your employees through a fun team-building activity that people of all ages and fitness levels can take part in. With emphasis on collaboration, communication, commitment and co-ordination, the lessons learned on the water can be taken back to the workplace. Dragon boat paddling can bring out leadership, help develop a sense of pride and accomplishment among participants, and build camaraderie.

Our corporate programs are for both experienced and novice paddlers, and include 4, 8, and 16 week options. Practices are 1.5 hours twice per week and can be tailored into customized programs (subject to coach/equipment availability). All corporate options include coaching and entry fees for the following festival:  the Victoria Dragon Boat Festival Team Entry (August)

Corporate Training programs include:

  • Dragon Boat Rental
  • Use of Paddles
  • Use of Personal Flotation Devices (PFDs)
  • Coach and Stern for all training sessions and  and Victoria Dragon Boat Festivals
  • Single Team entry into the Victoria Dragon Boat Festivals

Enrolment criteria: Teams must consist of 20 paddlers with up to 4 spares. FGPC will supply you with a steersperson, a drummer and a coach. Practice times are secured with a $500 non-refundable deposit. The remaining corporate team fees are due on or before the first practice.
