EDBRC – U16/Youth Program

Youth paddle for free in our U16/Youth Program!

The U16/Youth team is our program for youth ages 12-16 to try dragon boating.

No experience is required — the goal of this program is to teach new paddlers the basic fundamental techniques of paddling. Youth will be able to build their physical fitness, make friends, and spend their summer days on the river.


Coached by Julie Mitchell


Youth aged 12-18 paddle free of cost.

Membership is required. Parents must sign a waiver before paddling.
