What you need to practice
We will provide you with a paddle and a PFD (Personal Floatation Device) if you don't have your own. We suggest you bring a water bottle and wear water shoes or footwear that you don't mind getting wet. You will not need to step in the water but some water gets into the boat and you may get wet. Weather appropriate clothing, we practice in the rain and cold weather. A water resistant jacket is a good idea in cool weather. Optional- hat and/or sunglasses and sun block. You may want to bring dry clothes to change into after practice.
No. We will teach you the techniques and strategy but please keep in mind we are a competitive group and like to push ourselves. Ocean State Dragon Boat Club is constantly striving to reach the next level and competes against other top ranking clubs throughout the North East.

We have members on our teams of all shapes and sizes. However, we are a competitive team. We do prioritize seating arrangements and competitive events based upon participation and team goals.
We strive to make this sport as affordable as possible. There may be seasonal club dues / race fees depending on fundraising and financial status of the club
