Try Paddling with Dragons Alive!

We offer free Try-It-Tuesday events during the month of June. 

Try-It-Tuesday dates in 2024:

June 11, June 18, and June 25

No experience is required, and there is no commitment or fee to attend until you have tried it twice, at which point we ask you to join the team if you so choose. (You will want to join right away!!!). We provide all the equipment you will need in the form of PFDs and paddles (and the boat of course). Do bring water, sunscreen and shoes that can get wet. Wear any clothes suitable for exercise, but wicking fabrics are preferable to cotton.

Please make reservations for the Try-It-Tuesday events by emailing us at the address in our contact information (this allows us to contact you beforehand if a practice has to be canceled due to weather). If you are unable to come at all on Tuesdays we will accommodate you on a regular practice day if at all possible.

Dragons Alive holds regular practices Monday and Thursday evenings, from 6-8 pm and Wednesday mornings from 7:30 to 8:30 am.

Practices begin with a warm-up on land, the coach then designates the seating plan in the boat, taking into consideration skill levels, weight balance, and paddling side preference. We encourage paddlers to try different seats in the boat as much as practically possible. We normally paddle for at least 1 hour, depending upon the weather and light availability, and whether we are training for a race.
