WAM members participate in races with their respective home teams as well as entering several dragon boat competitions with WAM. Our current calendar consists of the following races:
March 24-25, 2018 – Arizona Dragon Boat Festival in Tempe, AZ
June 23-24, 2018 – Concord Pacific Vancouver Dragon Boat Festival in Vancouver, BC
July 17-22, 2018 – Club Crew World Championships (CCWC) in Szeged, Hungary
There are special training and assessment requirements to join the crews for CCWC, with the Head Coach selecting the racers for this event. However, any paddlers aged 40-plus are welcome to join the WAM training sessions and possibly be selected to join one of the local racing teams for events in March, June or September, without meeting the higher level of commitment, training and assessment required for CCWC.
To learn more about training requirements for any of these events, contact Lesley Blyth, the Head Coach.
