That depends on your team’s level.
Typically, it’s warm up to Cambie bridge, then we’ll go over technique, endurance practices, race pieces and race home!
The practice lasts an hour and a half, sometimes shorter.
For your first practice, we’ll focus on how to hold the paddle and paddle in time with the others 🙂
You get lots from joining dragon boat: friends, friends and more friends.
You get even more when you commit to this sport: learn more about yourself, better your endurance, learn to be strong both physically and mentally, learn to be a good team player, learn to focus (as you know it’s very difficult), and learn to fight as a team. It’s a team sport that will help you learn about yourself and grow.
Sunny Day- bring a cap, wear sun screen. (not too much on your face or it will sting you if your face gets wet), and a bottle of water. There will be small breaks in between practice pieces.
Rainy Days- a water-resistant jacket, warm clothing, a bottle of water. Dress in layers. An extra change of clothes is also recommended.
There are designated leaders for each practice, please contact the respective leaders. If you cannot reach them, please let one of your fellow teammates know.
Unless informed by your captain thru e-mail, YES. Practices are on RAIN OR SHINE. Do not skip practice.
