*** Introductory sessions are back!!! ***

DRAGON BOAT Introductory sessions for 2022 are happening now. 

Sessions are currently scheduled for:

  • Saturday 7 May 2022
  • Saturday 14 May 2022
  • Saturday 21 May 2022

Across three sessions you will be guided through the basic techniques of dragon boat paddling, each week building on the skills learned the week before. The sessions are run by fully accredited coaches who are also very experienced paddlers. The introductory series is FREE but bookings are essential. Register below. All equipment is supplied. 

OUTRIGGER CANOE introductory sessions for 2022 will be scheduled soon. Up to three sessions are FREE. Come along and learn about the sport of Outrigger Canoe. Our experienced coaching team will guide you through the basics and have you hooked in no time.
Bookings are essential. All equipment is supplied. 

The easiest way to get involved and to see what the sport is all about is to book a seat at one of our specially focused introductory sessions.

We offer up to three (3)  free sessions designed to help you understand what we are about and to decide if this is a sport for you.

Each session will start off with on shore activities to get everyone warmed up and switched on. This usually involves a range of activities to get your heart rate moving.

One of our experienced paddlers will then guide you through the basics of paddling and deliver a safety demonstration before heading out onto the water. From here our qualified coaches will teach you the finer aspects of paddling. 

All equipment including paddles and life jackets are provided by BRD. It is recommended that you wear suitable clothing and footwear (you may get wet as this is a water sport). Also it is advised that you bring the following additional items:

  • a hat
  • sunscreen
  • towel
  • a bottle of water

Don't miss out, book in for an introductory session today!
