RHCC offers two Dragon Boat programs – an In-house RHCC Dragon Boat Team Program and a Dragon Boat Rental Program for Teams.

The in-house team program provides individuals 15 and older, with some to no experience in the sport, the opportunity to form a team.

Our Club also offers the opportunity for corporate, high school or community teams to rent our Dragon Boat and equipment for their practices or event from early May until late September.

IN-HOUSE RHCC DRAGON BOAT TEAM

If you are interested in trying out the sport of Dragon Boating, or already have some experience in the sport, you may sign up for 9 consecutive 1-hour, weekly sessions and become part of an RHCC team. 

Choose between our Spring session commencing in early May, or the Summer session starting the beginning of July (or both!)

You and your teammates will be taught basic strokes, as well as safety and teamwork skills and by course end will be equipped with the necessary skills to paddle confidently, as part of a crew, in a recreational team setting. Your certified instructor’s focus is on safety, skill development and fun!

Lessons take place on beautiful Lake Wilcox, and all necessary equipment including paddles and mandatory Canada-approved PFDs will be provided.

DRAGON BOAT RENTAL FOR TEAMS​

Need some training time for your corporate, high school or community team? Or simply looking for a team building activity? We have a Dragon Boat available for rental!

Dragon boat training and racing is a fun and physical way to promote a healthy lifestyle, teamwork and camaraderie for your group.

A Dragon boat practice group can consist of a minimum of 12 and a maximum of 20 paddlers. In addition, there is a Cox (the person who steers) and there can be a Drummer as well, to beat out the paddling pace. Don’t have a Cox? We have our own RHCC Dragon boat cox/coach.
