Club-Managed Teams

FGPC has club teams that train and compete in six categories:

  1. mixed novice,
  2. mixed competitive,
  3. women’s competitive,
  4. mixed senior (50+),
  5. women’s senior (50+)
  6. and junior (13 to 18).

If you already know how to dragon boat—or would like to learn—but don’t have a team, then a club team may be right for you. Regular attendance and challenging training are required for our competitive programs.

A willingness to learn and have fun are required for our recreational programs. Our senior mixed and women’s teams are very popular and fill up fast, so get your individual registrations in early. FGPC provides club teams with trained coaches.

Club-team fees include a choice of:

  • two 1-day FGPC-sponsored festivals: Fairway Gorge Super Sprints (May 2016), and Fairway Gorge Fest (August 2016) and the 2-day Victoria Dragon Boat Festival (August 2016).
  • three 1-day FGPC-sponsored festivals: Fairway Gorge Super Sprints (May 2016), Fairway Gorge Fest and the Oceanfront Suites Dragon Boat Festival at Cowichan Bay(August 2016) and two 2-day Festivals: Nanaimo Dragon Boat Festival (July 2016) and the Victoria Dragon Boat Festival (August 2016).
