Practices are held four times a week, starting at the dock at Johnny’s Dock, 1900 East D St in Tacoma:

  • Mondays from 6 – 7 p.m.
  • Wednesdays from 6 – 7 p.m.
  • Saturdays  from 8:30 – 10 a.m. 
  • Sundays from 4:30 – 5:30 p.m. The Sunday sessions are a little less strenuous and are great for those getting back into paddling shape and for paddlers new to the sport.

Please meet at Johnny’s Dock at least 15 minutes before practice time. If you are new, please arrive 20 minutes early so you can sign your waiver and get your gear.

Paddles and life jackets (personal floating devices) are always available. Dress in layers, wear clothes that can get wet and bring a bottle of water.

The first three paddles are free!

Here is some more information about practices and teamwork for new members as well as the “Try Dragon Boating” flyer. Thank you!
