COURTENAY B.C – The Dragon Riders Youth Dragon Boat Team is looking for young and spirited individuals to join their team.

They are looking for those who are between the ages of 13- 20 and who are looking for an inclusive, positive sport to take part in this summer.

No experience is necessary, but they would like individuals who show an eagerness to try hard, and have a willingness to commit.

The team will get underway on April 16th and will run until August 15th, and they invite anyone who is unsure about joining to visit a practice session.

Practices will be held at the Comox Marina on Tuesday evenings from 4:30 p.m to 6:00 p.m.

The club says many team members find that dragon boating is an effective way to cross train, or stay in shape for winter sports.

They also say its great for those who enjoy taking part in a team sport where there are no individual stars, simply a committed team having fun while working out together.

Each year the team enters three local competitions in Campbell River, Comox and Nanaimo, and is trained by skilled coaches and fully qualified tillers.

If you’re interested in joining the team, the cost is only $20 for the season and equipment will be provided.
