Schuylkill Dragon members have two options within the team. If you have a penchant for fierce competition and are already fit you might enjoy our competitive team. If you’re looking for a more casual approach to dragon boating and are mostly interested in just getting/staying fit, try our recreational team.
Fitness testing determines admission onto the Competitive team. The testing is designed to be age-graded and sport-specific.
One such requirement is a time trial test, which is a test to see how fast you can get yourself 500 meters without anyone else. To accomplish this, we use one-man outrigger boats (OC1s). (OC1s can be checked out by members!) Check out a sample of our 2016 time trials.
Recreational (Fit) Team
Our fit crews work hard alongside the competitive crews! Fitness crews race locally and may be asked to fill in on non-local races as needed.
