The most enticing aspect of dragon boat might be the social one. You can train, you can be in shape, but the secret to success is really synchronicity: working together as a TEAM. There’s a great camaraderie that develops as a unit.
Come as you are but don’t call it “rowing” calling it “paddling” that’s a dragon boat faux pas.
If you want to have fun and you’re willing to get wet, that’s pretty much the prerequisite.
Silver Lining Racing Team practices from May to late September, two to three times a week for about 2 hours . Our team competes in 3 to 4 regattas per season in both Canada and the US.
The cost is free for the 1st year paddlers. A minimal annual membership fee will apply to experienced paddlers to cover boat use and other expenses.
By implementing a fee, there’s a vested interest since this is a pay-to-play sport.
If someone has financial difficulties, we can work with them to make it feasible.
This is a FREE activity for all metastatic sisters.
about two minutes, thirty seconds. The Silver Lining Team races in 200-meter, 500-meter or 2K distances.
The sport doesn’t just fire up your arms; it’s a full-body workout since each stroke originates from your quadriceps, hamstrings and core.
The scenery isn’t too bad either. Our team enjoys the sunshine, the sunset and the beautiful scenery of Salmon Lake.
