Junior Ryders (10-17)

Junior Ryders

Ryde Dragon Boat Club is on a mission to build our junior team (10-17 years of age). Our aim is to develop the future of dragon boating and our club by developing pathways for young paddlers to grow in the sport from juniors through to youth, premier and seniors. For young paddlers dragon boating represents a fantastic way to experience a team sport where they have people of all ages and genders as role models.


Dragon boating comes with many personal development opportunities for all members and paddlers can choose their own journey. Paddlers can learn to sweep (steer the boat) or coach, they can participate in representative teams including regional, state and national teams and compete all around the world!

 I enjoy how Dragon Boat Racing is inclusive, social, and the community is so friendly and inviting of people  from all ages and backgrounds
