Unleash your inner dragon!
Registration for the 2019 St. Lawrence River Dragon Boat Challenge begins February 1, 2019, and we’re calling everyone to get in a boat! That’s right—from first-time paddlers to seasoned racers, everyone is welcome. It’s easy to register a team, and you don’t need any experience to join in on the fun — in fact, we like to think there’s a dragon boater in all of us! 
Team structure
Anyone can form a team! Your team can include colleagues, friends, families, youth groups, college groups, church members, civic organization leaders, community organizations, government employees, sports teams, clients, or anyone willing to take up the challenge of seeking the title of Grand Champion!
Important team info before you register:
