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.
Our general policy is "first three are free", meaning you may attend three practices with a team before we ask you to consider officially joining the club. Once you join the club, you may practice with whichever teams you would like.
Annual membership varies by age and team:
Regardless of your primary team affiliation, NCAWPA members enjoy the following benefits:
As a 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.
