North Shore Dragon Boat Family Paddling

Team Registration

Paddles Up!  At the heart of every dragon boat festival are the teams that participate both in two race heats and in the finals round. Whether an extended family paddling for the first time or an experienced team of competition paddlers, our festival offers every team the chance to Paddle for Community while relishing time out on the water.

Teams typically consist of 22 active members in the boats plus other supporting cast. Please note that each team must have at least 8 female paddlers. Paddlers may only paddle with one team.

Registrations are welcome at any time, though space may be limited as the race day draws near.  The stair-stepped registration fee structure is intended to encourage teams to register as early as possible.

You may register online by filling out the blanks below and then clicking on the Buy Now link.  Once your payment is accepted, you will be registered.
