Come out and join the fun – paddle with your Kaiser Permanente colleagues from all over Southern California!
Dragon boat racing began in China over 2000 years ago. Dragon boat racing is one of the true team sports; a team of 20 people must paddle in unison for the boat to move. Paddling helps you build core strength and stamina, while having fun! There are no superstars, just one team working together.
Today, dragon boat racing is an international sport that is growing in popularity in the US. With local competitions to international championships, from kids to breast cancer survivors, there is a team for everyone.
Join the SCAL Kaiser Permanente DragonFit team, at Mother’s Beach in Long Beach!
The recruitment dates will be Saturdays from March – May from 7:30 am – 10 am.
