Forming a team is easy! Included in your team registration is a practice session where we will show you how to paddle and race. Practice sessions and the exciting DragonBoat Race Day event itself include all the necessary equipment: a dragon boat, paddles, life preservers (PFDs), a drum and a professional steersperson/coach.
