As with any sport or activity, rowing has its own set of hazards and dangers. For starters, rowing boats aren't exactly the lightest of vessels, and being out on the water can still pose a risk for even the most experienced rower or swimmer.

Fundraising. One of the least exciting aspects of being on a dragon boat team, yet arguably one of the most important components of the club. Unless your team is sponsored by a large company or benefactor, you are constantly searching for ways to raise money in order to keep your boat afloat, so-to-speak. Most clubs finance the majority of their organization with membership dues, but typically this does not fully cover the cost of all the team’s necessities such as boat maintenance or

If you want to reach your goals for the year, it is important to take the time to plan how you will achieve them. And what better time to do that than the beginning of the year when everyone has returned refreshed and excited for the new season? Here are some things for you to consider in your annual plan,

Can you imagine if this was you and your club’s shells on your way to
