Capital City Dragons Program Overview
Capital City Dragons is DC's first and only year-round dragon boat paddling team. Our season begins once the weather warms up around early April and ends after our last race, typically in late August. For those who wish to continue training during the "off-season", we also provide organized indoor practices on our club's paddling machines.
Race attendance: Attendance at a race is based on interest. If sufficient paddlers sign up for a race, we will plan on attending. Each race will have an associated race fee (typically $40-$50), which is to help cover the team's registration fee and a small contribution for race day food.
Adult team partnership: Capital City Dragons also frequently partners with our club's adult team, DC Dragons. Our teams practice together once a week, and will often combine rosters at certain races--either as a mixed, women's, or men's team. Our club firmly believes that dragon boating--and paddling in general--is a sport to be enjoyed throughout your life. Capital City Dragon "alumni" are encouraged to join DC Dragons upon graduating high school and continue to foster their connection to our paddling community.
