We are a newly formed Women's Dragon Boat Club , The Iron Maidens. We are looking for enthusiastic paddlers to join us.
Never paddled before? No worries - we are a friendly and supportive group of women., and most of us only started paddling last season, so we know how it feels to be new. We like to enjoy all aspects of this fantastic sport, from the social interaction to the sheer physicality and the joy of having a medal around our neck!
-You need to have the time to train and to compete.
- Be prepared to put as much into your fitness as you can. None of us are elite athletes and we have varying degrees of fitness, but we all work as hard as we can through the season to be the best we can be.
-You need to work as part of a team. This is not a sport for individuals - 22 women in the boat requires flexibility, a lot of tolerance, sometimes a bit of compassion, a sense of humor, and the desire to be the very best that you can be.
- There will be fundraising, so you need dedicate time and energy to put into this.
We have a really good time on and off the water. Most of us have busy lives, and the chance to throw ourselves into a team sport such as dragon boating is a real tonic in many ways.
We invite you to join us for a Recruiting Meeting this Sunday(Feb. 3 at 3pm) at Panera Bread in Lakewood.
Cost – Membership fee is $25. And $5.00 per practice
Summer training times: May-September
