The Dragon Boat Program runs Monday and Wednesday evenings and is designed to build a recreational dragon boat team of enthusiastic adults. No experience is necessary. Registration includes participation in two dragon boat festivals. Dragon boat rentals are also available for existing teams.

Dragon boat is a popular paddling sport that has been around for centuries. A dragon boat holds 20 paddlers along with one steers-person and a drummer. The goal is for all paddlers to paddle in sequence to propel the boat forward as fast as possible over a short distance (usually 500m). Races typically take 2 to 3 minutes, requiring a combination of technique, endurance and concentration.


Program runs from April 30 to August 11, 2018, Mon & Wed 6:30-8:00 p.m.
Cost is $300 including all taxes and fees.

Cost includes equipment and team registration in the Pickering Dragon Boat Festival June 2-3 and the Guelph Dragon Boat Festival August 11. Participants are responsible for their own travel arrangements.

Participants become members of Pickering Rouge Canoe Club (PRCC) for the year of registration.

PRCC has the option to cancel the program if there is insufficient registration. Full reimbursement will be provided if the program is cancelled before April 30, 2018.


A volunteer cheque is not required for this program; however, assistance with the PRCC BBQ and beer tent at the Pickering Dragon Boat Festival June 2-3 is required. Sign up will be available online on PRCC’s website.
