Frequently Asked Questions
How many practices are there?
This will be our third year as a community level boat. We will have four practices (either at New Hope or Core Creek) and then participate in the Bucks County DragonBoat Festival on September 23 at Core Creek. Tentatively, the practices are scheduled for June 11, July 9, August 13 (time TBD). There will be one more practice on the race course in September.
What classes are included?
As part of the team you can participate in the Saturday Strength and Cardio Fusion Class held at our Doylestown branch 8:30am-9:15am with instructor Steve Prekup. This is a value of $12 per class included in your team registration.
What if I can't make all the practices?
We encourage you to attend all practices, but realize that sometimes you will have other obligations.
Who is on the team?
The team will be made up of members from Doylestown, Warminster and Lower Bucks branches. We need 20 team members to fill the boat and always hope to have 22 on the roster for subs as needed. The coach will be the drummer during all races.
What is the fitness level and experience of the participants?Dragon boat is great for everyone no matter what age or fitness level! The coach works with you to find the place in the boat that works the best for you. Some of the team will be returning for the third year. Other members will be brand new to the sport of Dragon Boat racing.
