**** At this time registration is on hold for PaddleStrong, until we assess demand for the 2022 season.

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 friend Bruce Saunders, who sadly passed away due to cancer in 2008.  We paddle in his honour! Paddles Up!

Skill Level: Advanced

Practices: One day per week, for one hour on Thursday evenings in the summer

Races: 2-3 regattas throughout the summer
