Dragon boating is the world’s fastest growing water sport, and it’s a great way to get on the water with family, friends or colleagues. The oversized canoe has a dragon head and tail, and everyone paddles to the beat of a drummer.
Each RIVERSPORT Dragon Boat League season includes a 90-minute practice one day a week for 10 consecutive weeks under the supervision of a boathouse coach. Choose a time slot – whatever day works best for your team of 12-15 paddlers from your church, civic organization, family or office. Or, join by yourself and be placed on Team RIVERSPORT! No previous paddling or boating experience is required. Dragon Boat League season pricing begins at $1600 for a team and $150 for an individual. The participation fee includes all lessons, event entry fees, coaching and equipment.
The two seasons of the 2017 Dragon Boat League begin in April and July. The spring season leads up to the Stars & Stripes River Festival on June 24 and the fall season culminates with the OGE NightSprints during the Oklahoma Regatta Festival, Oct. 5-8. Teams can participate in one season or sign up for both seasons. Team members have unlimited access to the fitness facilities in the Chesapeake Boathouse and RIVERSPORT Adventures in the Boathouse District and at Lake Overholser (excluding the SandRidge Sky Zip). Must be 18 years or older to participate.
