The Clarkdale Jetta Dragons are a mixed dragon boat racing team of youths from the Killarney neighbourhood and throughout the community.
What is Dragon Boat Racing?
"It's Wet, It's Wild. It's the Best Workout You've Ever Had. The world's fastest growing water sport is also the most exciting. Twenty paddlers move in unison, combining strength with teamwork in a boat whose elaborate design originates in ancient China. It's all About Teamwork!
The Crew: A maximum of 20 paddlers, with a steersperson (cox) and a drummer. The Challenge: Dragon Boat Racing is a great sport for men and women of all ages and abilities. Anyone can do it and have fun!
The Scoop: Teamwork is everything in Dragon Boat Racing. Synchronicity is more important than strength. A perfectly synchronized team will almost always beat a stronger, but less coordinated team."
The Killarney Dragon Boat Racing Club (KDBRC) gratefully acknowledges the generous financial support of Clarkdale Volkswagen and the Killarney Student Council.
