Goal: World Club Championships, every two years. 

The next World Club Championship will take place in France in 2020. We are looking for people who are in good physical shape and above all ready to commit themselves 100% to our club goal.

Who are we looking for?

  • I paddled in the community category and I want to take the dragon boat to the next level.

When and how to join our sports program? 

The best time to join one of our Sport Program teams is in the fall at the start of the indoor season. However, it is often possible to replace regular members during outdoor training sessions. The management of the “when” to join our Sport program is really on a case by case basis. This is why we simply ask you to indicate your interest in our Sport program by filling out the following form. We will contact you for a meeting or a tryout!

Selection process:

The training program is designed specifically for the dragon boat. It is also designed to prepare you for certain physical evaluations (weight training, ergometer) that will be used during the selection process. A series of technical evaluations are also scheduled to measure your progress. Contact us for more information on each of our programs.
