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 the American Canoe Association (ACA) to provide experiences that go well beyond the discipline of Dragon Boat Racing. The ACA covers every type of paddlesport, and Dragon Boat USA is dedicated to helping grow the ACA by offering athletes of all ages the opportunity to explore Dragon Boating and all other disciplines even up to the Olympic Disciples offered through ACA.
- Those interested in making a commitment to participate must be Dragon Boat USA and ACA 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+)
