daCatch is looking for paddlers with at least 1 year of dragon boat experience (preferred) to make a roster of 22 paddlers for this season.
This team is great for those who wish to expand on their paddling experience, while looking to add a slight competitive edge. Keeping it fun, fresh, and recreational is what we do best, so be ready for social events, laughter, friendships, potluck regattas, and more! You can expect a memorable summer of a team-oriented sport with challenging practices on the water and regattas where you get to bring it altogether and shine!
daCatch will train at Afterburn Fitness and Sunnyside Park in preparation for 3 regattas this season: Milton, Welland and Montreal.
Please ensure your schedule works with our paddling schedule and regattas as outlined below (with Saturdays or Thursday practices), since paddling and training together as a whole is essential to our success. Dragon boat racing is a team based sport; we expect paddlers to have the commitment and dedication to come out to practices and regattas.
Paddlers are expected to arrive at practice changed and ready at the designated time. Attendance and punctuality are required and will affect your chances of being on the boat at races (especially since there are limited practices between regattas this season.) A warm-up session at Sunnyside Pavilion will take place prior to each water practice.
Looking forward in seeing you this season, paddles up!
