Why Paddle?

Want to race dragon boats as part of a corporate or company program? Consider a FGPC corporate dragon boat racing program. We supply all the necessary equipment and provide a coach and steersperson.

Dragon boat paddling offers a unique opportunity to engage your employees through a fun team-building activity that people of all ages and fitness levels can take part in. With emphasis on collaboration, communication, commitment and co-ordination, the lessons learned on the water can be taken back to the workplace. Dragon boat paddling can bring out leadership, help develop a sense of pride and accomplishment among participants, and build camaraderie.

Our corporate programs are for both experienced and novice paddlers, and include 15x (8 week) or 8x (4 week) 1.5 hour practices that can be tailored into customized programs (subject to coach/equipment availability). The 15x and 8x corporate options include coaching and entry fees for the following festival:  the Victoria Dragon Boat Festival Team Entry (August)

 

Corporate Training programs include:

  • Dragon Boat Rental
  • Use of Paddles
  • Use of Personal Flotation Devices (PFDs)
  • Coach and Stern for all training sessions and  and Victoria Dragon Boat Festivals
