New paddlers are welcome to join Kamloops Dragon Boat Club any time of the year, though the earlier in the season is generally better. We offer drop in practices to try out this great sport and see if it is for you for only $10/session.
We offer two different programs; our Regular Program or the Recreational Program
The regular program starts April 8th, 2015.
The regular program runs 3 days a week: Mon, Wed, Sat.
This program is open to new to advanced paddlers. The program is progressive (as to volume and intensity) and different aspects of the stroke are introduced each week. Ideally you’ll attend a minimum of two practices per week and dragon boating will be only a part of your overall fitness routine. Generally paddlers of all experience levels will be mixed together as part of the regular practice schedule. However, as festivals approach, those paddlers going to the festival may be placed together to facilitate specific festival training.
The recreational program starts May 6th, 2015.
The recreational program runs once a week on Wed. immediately after the Regular Program practice.
This program is open to everyone and targets those that are either new to the sport or are looking for an experience that’s a little more relaxed than the Regular Program. It’s a great way to get out onto the water once a week and to meet new people who share an interest in learning to Dragon Boat. Ideally this program provides you with a stepping stone into the Regular Program.
