Dragon Boating

Dragon Boating




Dragon Boating is a fun and strenuous workout that requires great teamwork. Dragon Boating, while not technically a First Nations tradition, does incorporate many important aspects of the culture; particularly for the coastal Nations. The Nighthawks Dragon Boat program starts in April and includes one coached practice per week for 10 weeks. The season ends with the team racing in the Canadian International Dragon Boat Festival.  NEC Nighthawks team members have free access to a 6-person canoe during and after the 10-week training period for a full year.

This year the Dragon Boat Festival is June 23-25, 2017 (http://vancouverdragonboatfestival.ca/information-2/).

NEC students interested in participating should watch for further sign-up dates at the beginning of April, 2017.
