Corporate Training and Team Building

Corporate Training and Team Building

At Ryde Dragon Boat Club, we have four Dragon Boats NSW accredited coaches and six accredited sweeps. Between them, they have many years of experience as competitive dragon boat paddlers as well as running team building sessions and training successful corporate crews for the annual Lunar New Year Festival (LNY).


In the 2022/23 season we trained six crews for the LNY Festival in January 2023 and another crew for the inaugural Dragons on Darling Pride Festival in March 2023. Training packages are available for three to six sessions. We also take crews out for one off team building events.
