PaddleStrong is Dragon Boat Barrie’s most competitive team, traveling to regattas all over the province and training year round.  PaddleStrong is a group of paddlers from the Barrie area who are interested in dragon boat racing multiple times per Summer and being challenged by experienced coaches.  PaddleStrong is a cohesive team of 20+ paddlers who value fitness in and out of the boat.

PaddleStrong was formed in 2009 in support of our dear coach and friends Bruce Saunders and Team Captain Tracy Latimer, who both have sadly passed away.  We paddle in their honour! Paddles Up!
