Since 1992, our organization has evolved into four teams, comprising a truly diverse group of paddlers. Whether you are an accomplished paddler or looking to try dragon boating, the fastest growing international team water sport, you'll find what you need with one of our teams.
DC Dragons is a premier co-ed dragon boat racing team in the Washington DC Area. We practice year-round and race in local (DC, Baltimore), regional (Philadelphia and all over the East Coast) and international dragon boat competitions. All levels of paddling experience are welcomed!
The first Hawaiian outrigger canoeing team in the DC Area, NCA Outrigger now has established men's, women's, and co-ed teams. Join NCA OC to to experience the "Aloha" spirit and spend time exercising with a great group of people of all skill levels who enjoy experiencing DC in a wholly different way (on the water!).

We are proud members of a worldwide community of breast cancer survivors who have discovered the physical, emotional, and mental restorative benefits of the addictive sport of dragon boat paddling.
