Try Paddling with Dragons Alive!

Every Tuesday in June, 2019 is a “Try-Paddling Tuesday” event from 6-8pm at the Dragons Alive home base at Mohawk Valley Marine. No experience is required, and there is no commitment or fee to attend until you have tried it twice, at which point we ask you to join the team if you so choose. (You will want to join right away!!!). We provide all the equipment you will need in the form of pfds and paddles (and the boat of course). Do bring water, sunscreen and shoes that can get wet. Wear any clothes suitable for exercise, but wicking fabrics are preferable to cotton.

If you decide to join the team after either one or two “Try-Paddling” events you will join the “Dragons Alive Crew” on Monday and Thursday evening from 6-8pm for the remainder of the season.

Practices begin with a warm-up on land, the coach then designates the seating plan in the boat, taking into consideration skill levels, weight balance, and paddling side preference. We encourage paddlers to try different seats in the boat as much as practically possible. We normally paddle for about 1.5 hours (with rest periods), depending upon the weather and light availability.

Please make reservations for the Tuesday events by calling one of our coaches (this allows us to contact you beforehand if a practice has to be canceled due to weather). If you are unable to come at all on Tuesdays we will accommodate you on a regular practice day if at all possible.
