Dragon Boat Open Houses – Free Introductions to Paddling

FGPC offers dragon boat open house events every Spring to introduce new paddlers to the fun and camaraderie of dragon boat paddling.

Open Houses for Summer 2024:

  • Saturday 27 July – 1-3pm

All open house events will be held at FGPC ( 115 – 2940 Jutland Road (next to Glo on the water side of the building).

To let us know you’re coming, complete the form below. 

PARTICIPATION IS FREE. All are welcome and no experience is needed. Bring your family (6-years-old and up) as well as friends who are interested in trying paddling and we’ll get you out on the water for fun.

We recommend that you wear some comfortable clothing that you would wear for outdoor activity and that you wouldn’t mind getting a few splashes on. We provide all other necessary equipment like paddles and PFDs (life jackets) for your outing. You can expect to be on the water for about 20 minutes while our coaches run you through the basics of dragon boating. During and after your paddle, you will be able to meet our teams and paddlers who will be able to tell you all about their experiences with the sport.

For people brand new to paddling, this is a great opportunity to try it out before registering for one of the season’s “Greenhorn Dragon Boat” programs, which train on weekends and “graduate” at one of FGPC’s dragon boat races.

If you have any questions about this event, please don’t hesitate to contact us (info@fgpaddle.com / 778-432-3472). Paddles up!
