This is the FOURTH year for this team, formed in 2015 by Jack Leong (at Robarts Library) and supported by the Rusty Dragons. The team had great years in 2015-2017 and they look forward to building on an established crew that has fun while working hard at practices and race day.  It just goes to show that anyone can participate in this sport and have fun and do well.

The coach will take you from never having sat in a dragon boat to racing on Canada Day at Toronto's Centre Island. The objective is for this to be a fun experience for everyone.  The non-profit registration fee includes all practices and race day as well as the use of life jackets and paddles.  Use the red button below to register now!

New in 2018: Once-a-month high-quality video review so you can see yourself from side view while paddling.  This is an invaluable too to see how you are doing and in comparison to others, and is also a great tool for the coach to help individuals and the team as a whole.

If you have any questions, please contact Jack at jack.leong @ utoronto.ca or Christina at christina.tooulias @ utoronto.ca.
