Dragon Boat

Dragon Boat is a social, recreational paddling program for adults. (Not sure what a dragon boat is? It's a team of 20 paddlers sitting two abreast, and a cox who steers the boat from the rear!).

Dragon boat program

The Adult Dragon Boat program is a fun, recreational program for both beginners and experienced paddlers. The program offers a unique way to stay in shape, and a great social atmosphere to meet new people, all while enjoying the great outdoors on the beautiful Kearney Lake. Once a week in the summer, you'll go out with your dragon boat crew and a coach, and paddle up and down the lake doing drills and honing your skills. (There are also local dragon boat racing competitions, and if there is enough group interest, Maskwa will enter your group).
