Attend one of the team's dragon boat practices to find out if this sport is one you enjoy and can excel in. The best time for tryouts are the dates and times listed on the team's Meetup profile, which are time slots dedicated to newbies. If you are unable to meet any of the dates listed on Meetup, please firstname.lastname@example.org so one of our teammates can accomodate you!
Check out Paddling 101 videos on the home page for tips on paddling before joining the team on the water.
While tryouts are free, you will be asked to join the team after three tryouts. Practices are mostly for dedicated team members and are mostly focused on winning future races. Sorry, no more free rides after the three tryouts due to club insurance policies (with a few exceptions).
Practices are held at 7:30 am every Sunday at Mother's Beach.
For new members and current team members who wish to continue training or just paddling for the current race season, this is a reminder that membership fees are due.
Your yearly fee will cover 70 pre-scheduled training sessions, SCDBC fees,insurance, small events and typically two races (Long Beach and one other of our choosing).
$120 membership for the year, which is non-prorated.
