Anyone interested in dragon boat/outrigger canoe paddling can show up to our teams' practices to try out the sport. Please contact the respective team, so we know you're coming.
Once you feel comfortable being committed to becoming a member of NCAWPA, there is an annual membership fee of $275, which affords you a host of benefits including all-year use of the boathouse, dragon boat and canoe equipment, rowing and paddling machines, and participation in dragon boat competitions nationally and internationally. Reduced, youth memberships are available for paddlers ages 12-18. Find more information at Capital City Dragons (capitalcitydragons.org).
As a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, NCAWPA relies solely on volunteers and members to run its operations. Membership fees, which amount to less than $25 per month, allow us to maintain the Anacostia Community Boathouse, our equipment, and related costs.
However, we never turn anyone away because of inability to afford our membership fees. We pride ourselves in being able to accommodate youth members and assist members with unique financial circumstances.
GoPink!DC also offers special consideration for new paddlers. Visit GoPink!DC at http://www.gopinkdc.com/ for more information.
