Dragon Boat Paddling
Are you competitive?
Do you like being out on the water?
Learn how to paddle at NBP!
Once you learn the basics, you can join a team.
Dragon Boat 101: Learn the fundamentals of paddling in our Dragon Boat Paddling 101 course. Participants can expect to get the basics of stroke as well as on the water experience in the boat! Dragon Boat Paddling 101 is the prerequisite for joining our community team.
Join one of our teams! NBP offers two community teams — the NBP Dragons and Survivors In Sync (SIS). The Dragons compete in races across the nation, and SIS, which is a team of breast cancer survivors, competes around the world. (See more information downpage.)
