Don’t have the experience but you have the curiosity and willingness to try dragon boating? Or maybe you love the sport and want to share the experience with new paddlers. Then daWave may be the team for you!
We’re a novice level team, welcoming both new and experienced paddlers. You can expect to be challenged at practices and regattas, as we are a team with a subtle competitive streak. But it’s not all work – we’re a team that likes to have fun! Expect to meet new people, share laughs and participate in various fun competitions – some of which involve food. You’ll take part in new experiences, making it a summer you’ll never forget.
Paddlers of all levels are welcome. However, we do stress that daWave is a team that includes and introduces newcomers to the sport. We’ll teach the basics, improve our technique throughout the season, but more importantly, we’ll also have fun, inspire and help each other advance as a team. An open mind and commitment to attend regattas and practices are required.
daWave will train at Balmy Beach in preparation for our 4 regattas this season: Milton Dragon Boat Race Festival, Tim Horton’s Ottawa Dragon Boat Festival, Hamilton Waterfest Dragon Boat Race Festival, and GWN Sport (community level) Regatta.
