Did you know that dragon boating is among the fastest growing team water sports in the world? Check out this YouTube clip to see what it is about.
If that clip piqued your interest, come and join the Island Warriors for our 2016 Launch Party. I mean, what could be more fun than getting fit and strong with some of your friends? Disclaimer: You'll make a bunch of new ones, too!
We, the Island Warriors Dragon Boat Team, would like you to get into the boat with us . We will provide the life jackets and paddles. No prior paddling experience required. You will be taught by our 2 amazing coaches, Irwin Casiano and Victorina Piccio, who are part of Team USA. They raced in Poland for the ICF Dragon Boat World Championships for Team USA in 2014.
After paddling, our team will have a potluck to replenish some of the calories burned. Believe us, it's a full body workout :-)
You will need to bring:
- gloves, optional
Remember, this is a water sport. You will get wet, so bring an extra set of clothes and a towel.
We will have 2 groups that go out on the water:
9:30 a.m. - 10:15 a.m.
10:30 a.m. - 11:15 a.m.
First come, first served. First group must arrive no later than 9:00 a.m. to sign waivers and to learn the basics of the boat.
