Increased Paddling Opportunities
Dragon Boat USA is committed to offering opportunities to those interested in all paddles sports, not just Dragon Boating. Here are a few:
- Dragon Boat USA works with USA Canoe / Kayak (USAC/K) to provide experiences that go well beyond the discipline of Dragon Boat Racing. USAC/K has an initiative known as the National Talent ID program for youth and as this program develops, Dragon Boat USA is dedicated to helping this initiative by offering youth the opportunity to explore even the Olympic Disciples offered through USAC/K. Please let us know if the USAC/K National Talent ID program interests you and we will be happy to provide additional information.
- Those interested in making a commitment to participate must be Dragon Boat USA or USAC/K members as do the clubs competing.
- Dragon Boat USA Crews will be competing in the following divisions:
Junior Men (ages 15-18)
Junior Mixed (ages 15-18)
Junior Women (ages 15-18)
Senior Men (all ages - best of the best)
Senior Mixed (all ages - best of the best)
Senior Women (all ages - best of the best)
Master Men (40 + and 50+)
Master Mixed (40 + and 50+)
Master Women (40 + and 50+)
All divisions will race 200m, 500m and 2000m races in 20 and 10 person boats.
Please contact Dragon Boat USA below if you are interested in holding a Mini Camp, or simply have an interest in the USAC/K National Talent ID program.
Race Organizers can also take advantage by offering programs which utilize programs offered through Dragon Boat USA by tailoring a program which may compliment your event in an effort to help enhance the participants experience.
