A great team building activity! Calling All Teams - Illinois, Wisconsin and Beyond! Dragon Boat Racing dates back to a more than 2,300 year old tradition from Ancient China. 45’ sleek boats donned with dragon heads, tails and scales seat 20 paddlers.
A drummer sits in the bow pounding the drum to the beat of the paddlers’ stroke, and a steersperson stands in the stern guiding the team down the racecourse. Teams are forming now for the Pleasant Prairie Dragon Boat Festival.
Register a team at the listed website. Includes two practice sessions – coaching and equipment provided. $975 corporate teams / $750 club/community teams.
Thursday and Friday training clinics are available for an additional cost.
