Welcome to NCAWPA!
Home of the DC Dragons, NCA Outrigger, and GoPink!DC
We are NCAWPA, a non-profit organization that is the home of three established DC paddling teams, the DC Dragons (15+ Years as DC's premier Dragonboat club), the National Capital Area (NCA) Outrigger Club (who has been competing and training Outrigger newbies for over 10 years), GoPink!DC (the premier DC women's Breast Cancer Survivor Dragonboat team), and the DC Youth Dragonboat team.
We stand strong at over 80 members, and have trained and introduced a few thousand paddlers to DB and OC over the course of the last decade. Our organization's purpose is to introduce the community to paddlesports, while at the same time competing in races across the East Coast, across the United States, and even the world. Beyond paddling, our organization is very involved in the community, volunteering in a variety of ways including: Youth sports days, Earth Day Cleanup, Anacostia Waterfront cleanup, while also training a few hundred paddlers to participate in the Washington, DC Dragonboat festival.
We are actively looking for those interested in trying Dragonboating and/or Outrigging, as we bring new novices into the boats weekly. Come on down!!!
