High School Program
Sara Jones is leading another season of a high school program at Balmy Beach. The students practice twice a week for 2-hours each practice (using two boats) in the month of May as they prepare for the Pickering Youth (High School) Dragon Boat Championships. See the Pickering festival website at http://www.pdbc.ca/festival/youthchampionships.html.
UTSC Scartan Dragonboat
This enthusiastic group of paddlers have expanded to two boats this year! Their team co-captains are Carmen, Kevin, and Massey and they are working out the program and regattas. They practice Tuesdays, Fridays, and Sundays and their website is: http://www.utsc.utoronto.ca/~dboat/.
UC Water Dragons
The U of T University College team captains are Albina Tyker and Fransciso Woo, and they are planning out a similar practice schedule to last year. Their website is http://www.ucwaterdragons.org/.
This team is still working out their schedule. Their captain Anna Homem is looking forward to another exciting season for the all-women's team.
The 8th season of the parents and kids racing crew is raring to go. They won the "B" Division of the 10th annual DDRA Canada Day Regatta beating out other adult teams by a boat length and we had 9-12 year old paddler on the boat plus their parents. The team was formed back in 2006 by Tim MacFarlane who has coached them ever since. See http://rustydragons.homestead.com/2013/2013KrakenKrew.html for more details.
Toronto Regional Office "Tough on the Water"
MTCS "Oars to Discover"
