Welcome to Ryerson Rams Dragon Boat Club

Welcome to Ryerson Rams Dragon Boat Club! The 2016-17 season started in early October, and the club is excited to start the new season and watch the club grow. Last season the club had over 80 members, and this year they’re already seeing upwards of 100 members coming out to pool practices.

New paddlers were able to get a grasp of the sport during the boat clinic session held on Sept. 17 at Balmy Beach. New members also got a chance to participate at a dragon boat regatta on Sept. 24 at Christie Lake, where over 60 members of the Ryerson community came out to compete.

At information sessions in mid-September, the coaches of Ryerson Rams Dragon Boat (RDB) were encouraging and hopeful of the future of the club. RDB says that they hope to compete in more regattas in the future and also to travel to compete more. The club went to Orlando during Fall Reading Week to participate at the GWN Walgreens Orlando International Dragon Boat Festival. They hope to do more trips similar to the one to Orlando and travel to cities like Chicago and San Francisco, and potentially even to countries in Europe and Asia to compete.

The club continues to grow and is still accepting new paddlers willing to learn and get involved in the sport. For more info, please contact info@ryersondragonboat.ca.
