“Wise Dragons” is a separate Dragon Boat League race category for senior participants. To be considered a “Wise Dragon,” all paddlers on the same team must be a minimum of 60 years of age. “Wise Dragons” will follow the same league format, with one 90-minute practice per week for 10 weeks. Teams will receive medals for placing in the top three in this category at the regatta.
ABOUT THE DRAGON BOAT LEAGUE
Each 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. The participation fee includes all lessons, event entry fees, coaching and equipment.
The two seasons of the 2017 Dragon Boat League take place 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 also 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.
