The OWLS dragon boat team, the Dragonflies, is recruiting! We are looking for female athletes of all ages and all fitness levels who enjoy a good workout outdoors and want to try out paddling with our group of very friendly but very fierce water warriors. Dragon boating is a great team sport that builds endurance, strength, and wonderful friendships.
It doesn’t matter whether you are an experienced paddler or brand new to the sport: come check us out! The Dragonflies are fresh off an amazing and successful 2019 season during which, among other things, the team came in 3rd in the women’s division at the Portland Dragon Boat Race (out of 33 teams) and was voted the “Most Inspirational” at the San Diego Dragon Boat Race*. We’re now looking forward to a few months of off-season, relaxed paddling before the race season starts next spring.
NOW IS THE TIME TO TRY OUT DRAGON BOATING!
Come explore your potential in this environmentally friendly, competitive water sport and paddle with the team! No obligation; no commitment. Equipment provided. We are currently practicing Tuesdays from 6:30-7:30 pm and Saturdays from 8:30-10:00 am – we have plenty of spots available for new paddlers!
Please contact Eleanor Dubay or Lindsey Craven for more information and to arrange for a time to come out on the boat.
We hope to see you on the water soon!
