WELCOME to our FAMILY!
New TO DRAGON BOATING? HERE'S YOUR CHANCE TO TRY IT OUT!
Have you ever wanted to try dragon boating? Now's your chance! Welcome to the best little dragon boat club in eastern Ontario. Our paddling season extends from mid-May to late September, and it's easy to join us. We offer multiple paddling sessions weekly, for all skill levels.
FASTEST GROWING SPORT IN THE WORLD
Dragon boating is one of the fastest growing sports in the world. Clubs range from those sending teams to compete in international competitions to those that provide recreational paddling only. The Brighton Dragon Boat Club has something for everyone. For those who want a competitive experience, our racing team is for you! If you prefer a more laid back approach, we offer multiple recreational paddling sessions weekly. Never paddled before? No problem. We provide all the instruction and the equipment you need to participate — you just have to show up!
Looking for a fun opportunity to get out on the water? Our club offers more recreational paddling sessions than any other club in the region - nine a week! And your membership allows you to enjoy as many or few of these as you wish. Our club loves paddling - so much so that we hold special paddling events, like weekends at Bon Echo or Sandbanks Provincial parks, pot-luck paddling picnics at the mouth of the Murray Canal, or our annual Community Festival. Check out our events page to learn more!
Our club hosts one of the best race teams in the region - the HEAT STROKES! Coached by international competitor (and winner), Tricia Boehme, our race team has placed in the top three of each festival they've entered. Lots of fun, hard work and reward can be found here. Find out more about our race team or better yet, come out for practice and see what it is all about.
