The Club

Lively Dragon is a club out of Burlington/Hamilton Area.  We have paddlers that come from Mississauga, Milton and Brantford to paddle with us.  We own our own boats...(6 in total) as well as all the equipment that goes along with the boats... paddles, life jackets etc.
Currently, practices are indoors once a week.
Monday practices take place in Burlington at Cedar Springs Raquetball Club 7:15pm-8:30pm (this is a practice where we work on technique and do drills)
The boat practices will begin April 29 on the water (depending on the weather) and take place in Hamilton at Bayfront Park.  These practices will also be Monday 7:15-8:30pm
Thursday evening practices begin in May.. 7:15-8:30pm

 NEW***** . Wed morning practices begin in June 9:45am-11am

The cost of practices are $10 each 
Our coach is Ramsay Drummond-Young.  He has competed in three World Dragonboat Championships (Rome, Poland and Toronto) and he is an International Dragon Boat Federation Official.  He officiated at two world championships once in Penang Malaysia and the second just this past season in Prague Czech Republic.
Team manager/assistant coach and fellow paddler. 


Jackie Taggart.  In Penang Malaysia was part of a seniors women crew who won a gold in our 2000m race, and two bronze medals... one in the 500m and one in the 200m sprint. Jackie is also an International Dragon Boat Federation Official level 2 and also officiated in Prague Czech Republic.
