Are you ready for this year's Calgary Dragon Boat Race & Festival?

To help you start the 2017 Season off right, why not sign-up for the Calgary Dragon Boat Society Paddling Clinic being offered the weekend of June 10-11, 2017 at North Glenmore Park?

Over these two (2) days, you will improve upon your individual paddling technical skill, your existing stroke mechanics, and your overall paddling performance.  The sessions are designed for you to have some fun and meet fellow paddlers from the various Dragon Boat Clubs that you will see on out on the water this summer. This year, we are offering a lunch both days and lite snack throughout both days. Water will also be bottle available for those participating in the Clinic.

The clinic is built on two (2) separate learning paths.  Unsure what learning path to sign up under?  Please talk with your current coach who can talk with a member of the Calgary Dragon Boat Society for further direction.

Fees include a certified coach, boat usage, paddles and a PFD.  The fee also includes GST.  The details of the respective program are as follows:
