Dragon Boat League
Join our RIVERSPORT Dragon Boat League!
Dragon boating is the world’s fastest growing water sport, and it’s a great way to get on the water with family, friends or colleagues. The oversized canoe has a dragon head and tail, and everyone paddles to the beat of a drummer.
Each Dragon Boat League season includes a 90-minute practice one day a week for 10 consecutive weeks under the supervision of a boathouse coach. Choose a time slot – whatever day works best for your team of 8-12 paddlers from your church, civic organization, family or office. Or, join by yourself and be placed on Team RIVERSPORT! No previous paddling or boating experience is required. The participation fee includes all lessons, event entry fees, coaching and equipment.
The two seasons of the 2013 Dragon Boat League take place in April and July. The spring season leads up to the Stars & Stripes River Festival on June 29 and the fall season culminates with the OGE NightSprints during the Oklahoma Regatta Festival, Oct. 3-6. Teams can participate in one season or sign up for both seasons and compete for the 2013 league points trophy. Teams also have unlimited access to the fitness facilities in the Chesapeake and Devon Boathouses and are invited to take group fitness classes at no extra charge. Must be 18 years or older to participate.
For more information and to enroll your team, contact Karen Colwell by email or call (405) 552-4040.
